Transfer Students

You are considered a transfer student at SUNY Poly if you completed any college credit after high school graduation. If you earned college credit before high school graduation - regardless of the number of credit hours - you are considered a freshman/first-year student.

Apply to the Utica or Albany Campus

The following additional items may be requested by an Admissions Advisor:

**All transfer students, per federal mandate, must submit a high school transcript to the Admissions Office as part of the review process. However, this transcript will only be used as an evaluative tool in the review process if you have completed 30 or fewer college credit hours at the time of application; otherwise, decisions are made solely on the basis of your college record.
