After completing their associate degree many NCCC students transfer to four-year colleges and universities. Many factors should be considered when choosing a transfer college. Academic program is a primary consideration but cost, location, size and campus environment are also important. Student Development staff members are available to assist students with transfer decisions. To ensure maximum transfer credit, students should begin working with their faculty advisor or Student Development as early as possible.
NCCC has established transfer articulation agreements with approximately twenty (20) four-year colleges and universities. NCCC is rapidly expanding the Dual Admissions program, a special type of articulation agreement which guarantees admission at junior-level status at a four-year college upon completion of the associate degree. NCCC has Dual Admissions with Bryant and Stratton College, Canisius College, Daemen College, D’Youville College, Empire State College, Franklin University, Hilbert College, Medaille College, Niagara University, SUNY College at Brockport, SUNY College at Buffalo, SUNY College at Fredonia, SUNY College of Environmental Science and Forestry, the University at Buffalo, SUNY Upstate Medical University and Utica College of Syracuse University (GOLD program available to high school seniors only).
