SUNY Guaranteed Admission
Many of the associate degree programs at SUNY Ulster will lead to SUNY Guaranteed Admission. An opportunity to continue full-time study at a four-year SUNY college is guaranteed to all New York State residents who transfer directly from their degree-granting SUNY or CUNY two-year college with an Associate in Arts (A.A.) degree or an Associate in Science (A.S.) degree. While the guarantee assures that students may pursue their baccalaureate degrees through the SUNY system, it does not assure admission to a specific college or curriculum.
Articulation Agreements and Course Equivalencies with Other Colleges
SUNY Ulster has numerous articulation agreements, not only with other units of the SUNY system, but with four-year colleges in a variety of fields. These agreements ensure that students' course work and credits will transfer to the specified college or university.
Jointly Registered Programs
SUNY Ulster is proud to offer a jointly registered teacher education program with SUNY New Paltz that is approved by the New York State Education Department. The program has two certification options, each with two areas of specialization:
If you are enrolled in a Jointly Registered Teacher Education Program and you complete your AA or AS degree and meet New Paltz's transfer requirements, you may transfer to New Paltz with full junior standing to complete your bachelor's degree.
Although a 2.75 cumulative minimum grade point average is required, SUNY New Paltz relies heavily on accepting students with higher GPA's. As a transfer student, you must meet the same requirements for entrance into the major of choice as are required of SUNY New Paltz students.
