Dual Admission Programs

  • Erie Community College
  • Finger Lakes Community College
  • Genesee Community College
  • Jamestown Community College
  • Monroe Community College
  • Niagara County Community College

First-time freshmen who expect to receive an A.A. or A.S. degree from Erie Community College, Finger Lakes Community College, Genesee Community College, Jamestown Community College, Monroe Community College, or Niagara County Community College, and are in a parallel program may file a single application for admission to one of the two-year colleges and to Buffalo State. These students follow a definitive curriculum at the two-year college, and receive counseling and advisement that will facilitate enrollment into a parallel program at Buffalo State upon completion of the associate’s degree. They will matriculate at Buffalo State as juniors and must meet current admission requirements for their major at the time of matriculation.

They can expect to earn the baccalaureate degree for most programs in four additional semesters, provided they take at least 15 credit hours per semester. Students planning to pursue programs requiring certification (e.g. Education) may require more than four semesters of full-time study to finish. Further details are available from the Undergraduate Admissions Office at Buffalo State or the transfer counseling office at the participating two-year college.
