Undergraduate Admissions

Transfer Students

Each year more than 1,300 students transfer to The College at Brockport from other institutions of higher learning, with most attending from SUNY community colleges. With 49 undergraduate majors, transfer students have a variety of academic programs from which to choose.

 

Transfer Profile

Admission to The College at Brockport as a transfer student is competitive. Although a minimum grade point average of 2.5 is required for consideration (3.0 for Nursing Intent applicants), it does not guarantee admission. Most admitted students have a GPA of 3.0 or better.

Applicants are reviewed based on their demonstrated ability to be successful in college-level coursework. For students who have less than 24 transferable college credits, we also consider high school transcripts and SAT/ACT scores.

For students with 54 or more transferrable credits, we require you to select an academic major upon applying to the college. Teacher certification is available at Brockport, and must be coupled with a declared major in an approved content area. Please visit the Department of Education and Human Development's website for a complete list of appropriate academic majors for education certification.

 

Transferring Credit

Students can transfer up to 64 credits from accredited two-year colleges and up to 90 credits from accredited four-year colleges. Students entering with an associate's degree are guaranteed to enter with junior-year standing. However, in some cases it may take more than four additional semesters to complete all degree and/or certification requirements.

We encourage students transferring from a SUNY college to complete as many of the SUNY General Education requirements as they can prior to entering The College at Brockport. Your academic advisor at your current college can advise you on which classes fulfill the SUNY General Education requirement.

The Office of Academic Advisement has developed a Transfer Academic Planning Guide, which can assist transfer students and help identify course equivalencies between the classes at their current college and classes at Brockport. Academic Advisement will conduct an official evaluation of transfer credits once an applicant has been offered admission to the College.
