Summary

This policy governs the transfer and articulation of students to the State University of New York (University).


Policy

A.    New York State residents who are graduates of a State University of New York (University) two-year college, including the community colleges operating within 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.

1.    Graduates of two-year colleges within the University with an A.A. or A.S. degree, when accepted in a parallel program at a baccalaureate campus of the University, shall be accorded full junior status and be given the opportunity to complete the requirements for a bachelor’s degree within four additional semesters of full-time work.

2.    Graduates of two-year colleges within the University, when accepted with junior status within a parallel program at a baccalaureate campus of the University, shall be granted full credit for general education courses taken and not be required to repeat successfully completed courses with similar curricular content.

3.    Only those admissions requirements to institutions or to particular programs applicable to continuing and returning students shall be applied to University A.A. and A.S. transfer students. These transfer students shall be accorded, as far as possible, opportunities in areas such as housing, advisement and registration comparable to those of returning and continuing students.

B.   New York State residents who are graduates of a City University two-year college, and who possess an A.A. or A.S. degree, shall be guaranteed the same opportunity to continue their education on a full-time basis at a baccalaureate campus of the University as is accorded graduates from University two-year colleges.

C.   Baccalaureate campuses of the University in their enrollment planning shall give priority to A.A. and A.S. graduates of State University and City University of New York over other transfers. Academic decisions on admissions for such transfer students shall be based solely on their previous collegiate record.

D.   Baccalaureate campuses in making admissions decisions shall pay particular attention to applications from A.A. and A.S. transfer students from their region who cannot relocate to another part of the state.

E.   Baccalaureate campuses and two-year colleges of University are encouraged to maintain and expand their many agreements across the state and to be especially concerned for place bound students by having institutions in close geographical proximity expand articulation agreements and, where appropriate, establish joint admission agreements. These policy extensions to address place bound transfer students do not diminish the expectation that University baccalaureate campuses shall continue to provide access for A.A. and A.S. graduates from two-year colleges throughout the state.

Authority

State University of New York Board of Trustees Resolution 90-196 adopted on September 27, 1990.


History

Board of Trustees Resolution 90-196 adopted on September 27, 1990 reaffirming and expanding on the University transfer and articulation policy.

The Board of Trustees adopted Resolution 87-114 adopted on June 24, 1987, which provided that A.A. and A.S. graduates be granted full credit transfer for general education courses taken and not be required to repeat successfully completed courses with similar curricular content. The resolution required that transfer students be obliged to meet only those admissions’ requirements to institutions or to a particular program applicable to continuing and returning students. Further, the resolution required that transfer students be accorded, as far as possible, opportunities in areas such as housing, advisement and registration comparable to those of continuing and returning students.

Board of Trustees Resolution 80-53 adopted on March 26, 1980, provided that graduates, when accepted in parallel programs at baccalaureate campuses of the University, would be afforded full junior standing and would be given the opportunity to complete the requirements for a bachelor’s degree within four additional semesters of full-time work. The principal effect of this resolution was to improve integration of program majors between two-year and baccalaureate campuses.

The Board guaranteed a New York State resident graduating from a State University of New York two-year college with an A.A. or A.S. degree an opportunity to continue his or her education on a full-time basis at a baccalaureate campus in Trustees Resolution 72-302 adopted on November 29, 1972.
