Transferring to a four-year college or university is the goal of most SUNY Ulster students.

Each year, with the help of our Transfer Center, our students are successfully transferring to some of the best four-year institutions in the nation. By starting college at SUNY Ulster and transferring upon graduation, you can

  • Save money - Finish the first two years of your Bachelor's degree for thousands of dollars less than it would cost to do so at a four-year college or university.
  • Become a better student - Raise your academic performance, making you a more attractive transfer.
  • Get help with applications - The Transfer Office can assist you in completing applications to four-year colleges.

Successful transfer requires ongoing planning that is best started at the beginning of your freshman year.  We are committed to providing the guidance and resources necessary for your long-term success.

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:

  • Early Childhood & Childhood Education: Birth to Sixth Grade (B-6)
    - Humanities and Social Science
    - Mathematics and Science
  • Adolescence Education: Seventh to Twelfth Grade (7-12)
    - Humanities and Social Science
    - Mathematics and Science

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 GPAs. 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.
