Dual Admission and Articulation Agreements

Dual Admission

What Is Dual Admission?

Dual Admission is a formal agreement between Buffalo State and regionally accredited two-year schools that allow students to transfer to the college seamlessly.

How It Works
  • Students apply through their two-year school’s transfer office before completing 30 credit hours
  • Follow the articulation agreement for the specific academic program of interest and maintain the required GPA
  • File the Intent to Enroll form instead of the SUNY application early in the final semester at the two-year school

Students who complete the prescribed sequence of courses leading to an associate’s degree from their participating community college immediately continue their studies at Buffalo State with the understanding that they will be given the opportunity to complete all requirements in a parallel baccalaureate degree program in four semesters of full-time study at Buffalo State (unless otherwise specified by the program of study).

This assumes completion of the required credit hours, required grade point average (GPA), and required pre-requisite courses.
