Whether you are planning to "Start Here" at SUNY Erie or "Go Anywhere," our transfer counselors can help you create an educational plan by discussing transfer requirements, assisting with your college search, or researching fields of interest. SUNY Erie offers various articulation agreements and dual admission opportunities with four-year schools. Additionally, under the SUNY transfer guarantee program, all New York residents who transfer directly from a SUNY community college with an A.A. or A.S. degree are guaranteed an opportunity to continue full-time study at a SUNY four-year campus. While this guarantee does not assure admissions
into every major, it does provide you with an opportunity to continue your
education at a SUNY four-year institution.
There are three ways students can transfer credits to SUNY Erie. They are:
Submit an official transcript from all colleges previously attended to the admissions office. Once admissions has received your transcripts and you have received an acceptance letter from SUNY Erie, ask an adviser from the major you’ve been accepted to for ‘an evaluation of transfer credit.’
College credit can be earned while attending high school in several ways.
If you transferred to a four-year college before graduating from SUNY Erie, you can still earn your associate degree through Reverse Transfer. Reverse Transfer is a process where academic credits for course work completed at a four-year university are transferred back to your community college to satisfy associate degree requirements.
Course Evaluation Matrix - The Course Evaluation Matrix is an unofficial evaluation tool intended as a guide for prospective transfer students. The matrix lists equivalencies for courses previously transferred to SUNY Erie. Courses not listed are those that have not yet been evaluated.
There are three ways an SUNY Erie student can transfer to a four-year college. In each case, a student is required to apply and have an official SUNY Erie transcript sent to the college they are transferring to.
This is an agreement between a specific major at SUNY Erie and a specific major at a four-year college. This type of agreement informs students that a major completed at SUNY Erie is an appropriate match for the major a student intends on transferring into at the four-year college. (example: an associate’s degree in math at SUNY Erie will count as the first two years of a statistics degree at another college).
This is a special type of major to major articulation agreement for a "first time" college students who have completed 30 credits or less at the time of their request for dual admission. Dual admission agreements insure a smooth transfer upon graduation between SUNY Erie and selected four-year colleges and universities.
This is an agreement between a particular academic department at SUNY Erie and a particular academic department at a four-year college. Both departments have agreed that a certain course taken at SUNY Erie will transfer as an equivalent match for a course at the four-year college. (example: Biology 107 taken at SUNY Erie will count for Biology 110 at another college).
