The following information has been assembled to assist those students who have been accepted into the Dual Admission program with the University at Buffalo. By completing the following courses, students will fulfill the requirements for the NCCC associate degree listed above, and simultaneously complete credits toward the first two years of the University at Buffalo baccalaureate degree listed above. If you have any questions, contact your NCCC advisor, the NCCC Student Development Center (room A161), or the UB Admissions Office (phone 645-6900).
ADMISSION REQUIREMENTS: Completion of A.S. degree in Liberal Arts and Sciences and a minimum prerequisite course GPA of 3.5 Fall semester admission only. All prerequisite courses must have a grade of "C" or higher and be completed in the spring semester prior to the fall semester being applied for. Applicants must submit to a personal interview in this spring semester. Students may not elect the S/U grading option for prerequisite courses. Students who have a prerequisite course GPA between 2.5 and 3.5, or students that will need to finish 1 or 2 prerequisites in the summer are encouraged to apply and will be considered in the admissions pool with other applicants. Refer to the UB catalog or website http://undergrad-catalog.buffalo.edu/policies/grading/repeat.shtml for specific information regarding recomputation of GPA. The Intent to Enroll form (including official transcripts) must be completed by January 15.
Satisfactory (S) graded courses cannot be used for the major or prerequisites.
All high school AP (or other exams) credit will be independently evaluated by UB. See UB's AP evaluation table on the web at http://tas.buffalo.edu/altexam/apchart.php
SUNY GENERAL EDUCATION 2000 REQUIREMENTS (for students who started at a SUNY school in the Fall 2000 semester or later). The State University of New York's General Education Requirement requires baccalaureate degree candidates, as a condition of graduation, to complete a General Education program of no fewer than 30 credit hours specifically designed to achieve the student learning outcomes in ten knowledge areas, as specified below (codes in parentheses are used by NCCC to identify appropriate courses):
US History (U)
Basic Communication (C)
Natural Science (N)
Western Civilization (W)
The Arts (A)
Social Science (S)
Other World Civilization (O)
Foreign Language (L)
Community Colleges are not bound by the 30 credit hour requirement; however, students who plan to start at a community college and then transfer to a SUNY school to earn their baccalaureate degree should complete as many general education courses as they can while they are at the community college.
Completed SUNY General Education requirements submitted to UB on a SUNY GETA transcript will waive parallel UB General Education requirements. UB's General Education Requirements are at http://undergrad-catalog.buffalo.edu/policies/degree/gened.shtml
