SUNY Oneonta

Transfer Admission

Transfer students are defined as students who have attended college after high school graduation. The College enrolls a large number of transfers each year and encourages applications from qualified applicants.

All candidates for admission to an undergraduate degree program must submit the SUNY Application or the Common Application. Official transcripts from all institutions attended must be requested by the student and submitted directly to the Admissions Office. A high school transcript or evidence of equivalent education must be provided to Oneonta by all transfer applicants. Students dismissed by another college may not be admitted until at least one calendar year has passed since the date of dismissal and students must present evidence of successful study elsewhere during that period.

Transfer admission decisions are based on an overall enrollment goal for the College and the spaces available for new transfer students. For serious consideration, a student must have a cumulative grade point average of 2.5 or better with a strong record in their major and related fields. Students who wish to major in Education must have a 3.0 GPA. Students who wish to major in Music must pass a required performance audition. For more information please refer to the Music Department website.
