Dual Admission Programs

Admissions Office
Moot Hall 110

Students who expect to receive an Associate in Arts (A.A.) or Associate in Science (A.S.) degree from participating community colleges, and are in a parallel program, may file a single application for simultaneous admission to one of the two-year colleges and to Buffalo State University. 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 University upon completion of the associate degree. They will matriculate at Buffalo State University as juniors in credits and can expect to earn the baccalaureate degree for most programs in four additional semesters of full-time study. Students planning to pursue programs requiring certification or accreditation (e.g., education and professions) may require more than four semesters of full-time study to finish. The admission, general education, and major requirements for the bachelor’s degree at Buffalo State University will be those in effect at the time of the student’s application for dual admission at the two-year college. Further details are available from the undergraduate admissions office at Buffalo State University or the counseling office at the participating two-year college.
