Summary

The Transfer Guarantee Program was established on November 29, 1972 by the Board of Trustees of the State University of New York for the purpose of better serving students who choose to begin their college education at a two-year State University of New York or City University of New York campus. The goal of the Transfer Guarantee Program is to provide the applicant an opportunity to continue full-time study at a four-year University college when transferring directly from a University or City University two-year college with an Associate in Arts (A.A.) or an Associate in Science (A.S.) degree.


Policy

New York State residents who are graduates of a State University of New York two-year college or a City University two-year college, including University community colleges operating under the program of the University, and who possess an A.A. or A.S. degree, shall be guaranteed an opportunity to continue their education on a full-time basis at a baccalaureate campus of the University.

A.A. and A.S. graduates will be granted full credit transfer for general education courses taken and not be required to repeat successfully completed course with similar curricular content. Transfer students are obligated to meet only those admissions requirements to institutions or to a particular program applicable to continuing and returning students. Transfer students are to be accorded, as far as possible, opportunities in areas such as housing, advisement and registration comparable to those of continuing and returning students.

Graduates, when accepted in parallel programs at baccalaureate campuses of the University, will be afforded full junior standing and be given the opportunity to complete the requirements for a bachelor’s degree within four additional semesters of full-time work.

To be eligible for the program, a student must comply with application submission deadlines and have an A.A. or A.S. degree at the time of application.
