A new student, referred to as a freshman, has no prior college experience as a matriculated (enrolled in credit bearing certificate or degree program) student.
To begin the admissions process, simply complete the online application. In addition to your completed application, we will need a copy of your official high school transcripts or high school equivalency/TASC certificate.
Once we receive the aforementioned documentation, your admission application will be processed and you will be notified of your acceptance status.
The admissions checklist below will assist you in completing your admission and registration process.
Early Admissions Program
The Early Admissions Program is designed to provide an opportunity for qualified high school students to begin taking college-level courses before completing high school graduation and, with school permission, as fulfillment of high school graduation requirements.
Under New York State law an institution of higher education may admit as matriculated students only persons who have a high school diploma or its recognized equivalent. Because of this requirement, the State University of New York has established a specific admissions policy for home-schooled students.
This is for students not enrolled in a degree or certificate program. No financial aid is available for non-matriculated students.
NYS High School Equivalency
Students interested in pursuing a certificate or degree but have not completed their high school requirements may enter our High School Equivalency program.
