Transfer Services

Do you plan on transferring to another college when you leave SUNY Niagara? You can transfer ANYWHERE from SUNY Niagara!

Many students transfer to another college after leaving SUNY Niagara. Whether you plan on completing a few semesters here or completing an entire certificate or degree, there are many services and options available to students to make the transfer process easy. Many factors should be considered when choosing a transfer college. The academic program is a primary consideration but cost, location, size, and campus environment are also important. To ensure maximum transfer credit, students should begin working with their faculty advisor or contact the Career & Transfer Coordinator at 716-614-6268 as early as possible.

SUNY Niagara credits transfer to almost all other colleges!
There are two types of transfer paths:

Traditional Transfer

The student applies to the other college the semester before they are ready to transfer. Some of this type of transfer is guided by articulation agreements between SUNY Niagara and the transfer college while others are guided by the SUNY Transfer Pathways, which are clearly defined transfer paths for programs on the SUNY transfer path list.

Dual Admission

A type of articulation agreement that guarantees admission at junior-level status at a four-year college upon completion of the associate degree at SUNY Niagara. Students must meet with the Career & Transfer Advisor before completing 30 credit hours if they would like to be considered for Dual Admission. A newly expanded list of Dual Admission agreements will be available here during the Fall 2020 semester. Until the new agreements are posted, please contact Alissa Cummings at 716-614-6293 or with any questions.

How do you know which courses transfer
to meet specific requirements?

Though some colleges have course equivalency guides on their websites so you know what will transfer, students are strongly encouraged to follow up with their faculty advisor or the Career & Transfer Advisor before completing any transfer plans.
