SUNY Transfer Guarantee Program

An opportunity to continue full-time study at a four-year State University college is guaranteed to all New York residents who transfer directly from a SUNY or CUNY two-year college with an AA or AS degree. The transfer guarantee becomes effective if you are denied admission at all of your SUNY four-year college choices.

To be eligible you must:

  • File your application with the ASC by March 1 for Fall admission and by Oct. 1 for Spring admission.
  • Provide four-year campuses with an official two-year college transcript, showing three semesters of completed studies by March 15 for Fall admission, and by Oct. 15 for Spring admission.
  • Complete all required supplemental application materials by April 15 for Fall admission and by Nov. 15 for Spring admission.

Although campus choice and academic program are not guaranteed, SUNY staff will work one-on-one with each Transfer Guarantee candidate to determine how the applicant can best be served given campuses and programs that are open and suitable.
