State University of New York Transfer Guarantee

An opportunity to continue full-time study at a four-year State University college is guaranteed to all New York State residents who transfer directly from a SUNY or CUNY two-year college with an A.A. or A.S. degree. To be eligible, students must:

  • File an application with the SUNY Application Services Center by March 1 for fall admission or October 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 or by October 15 for spring admission.
  • Complete any required supplemental application materials by April 15 for fall admission or by November 15 for spring admission.

The transfer guarantee becomes effective if applicants are denied admission at all SUNY four-year college choices. All applications at baccalaureate campuses must be complete.
