You are considered a transfer student at SUNY Poly if you completed any college credit after high school graduation. If you earned college credit before high school graduation - regardless of the number of credit hours - you are considered a freshman/first-year student.
You can apply to the Utica or Albany Campus by submitting one of the following applications:
Submit the SUNY Application or Common Application.
The SUNY Application allows you to apply to multiple SUNY schools with one application.
The Common Application allows you to apply to over 500 participating schools with one application.
Both applications require a non-refundable $50 fee.
If you are applying with the SUNY Application and are graduating or have recently graduated with an AA or AS degree from a SUNY Community College, SUNY will waive your $50 application fee.

**All transfer students, per federal mandate, must submit a high school transcript to the Admissions Office as part of the review process. However, this transcript will only be used as an evaluative tool in the review process if you have completed 30 or fewer college credit hours at the time of application; otherwise, decisions are made solely on the basis of your college record.
