The agreement allows up to five interested and qualified high school students to enroll in any baccalaureate program at SUNY Poly, starting fall 2020, and it guarantees acceptance into SUNY Upstate’s College of Medicine upon completion of their undergraduate degree. Accepted students would not be required to take the Medical College Admission Test (MCAT) and would be automatically enrolled in Upstate’s Doctor of Allopathic Medicine program.
