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

  • File a transfer application with the SUNY Application Services Center or the Common Application. 
  • 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 to all SUNY four-year college choices. All applications at baccalaureate campuses must be complete.
