Just because you are attending a SUNY community college does not mean you cannot transfer to a private (non-SUNY) institution. Many of our students transfer to non-SUNY schools. The transfer process is relatively the same as long as you plan a head and read the admission criteria very carefully! Every private school can require different things. Below you will find some very useful links to help you on your transfer path.
