Transfer Applicants



Admission to SUNY Delhi is based on an applicant's academic qualifications, and is made without regard to the race, color, creed, age, sex, national origin, marital status, disability, or handicap of an individual. Admission will be offered to qualified applicants whose academic preparation and experience indicate that there is a reasonable chance for success in their chosen curricula.

Applications are received on a rolling basis; however, students are encouraged to apply early, particularly to popular programs of study such as Nursing, Applied Technologies, and Veterinary Science Technology. Students are admitted to specific curricula, and admission varies according to available space.

The credentials of each applicant are evaluated on an individual basis based on academic standards set by the College faculty. Candidates are encouraged to include as many college-preparatory courses as possible in their high school program. Applicants with strong academic backgrounds have an advantage over those who have completed less rigorous high school programs, particularly where the number of applicants for programs exceeds the available space.

Any deliberate falsification or omission of academic data by a student may result in a denial of admission, revocation of acceptance, or administrative dismissal from the College.



Admission Interviews

Prospective students and their families are encouraged to visit the campus to discuss college plans with an admissions counselor. This interview provides an opportunity to discuss academic major and career choices, college life, and financial aid. The Admissions Office makes appointments for visits and tours from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m., Monday through Friday.


Admission to Baccalaureate Programs

To be eligible for consideration for admission to a baccalaureate program, a candidate must submit a formal SUNY application and be a graduate of an accredited secondary school or have an equivalent education. Visit the Bachelor Degree pages of this catalog to view the specific admission requirements for each degree program.


Early Admission Program

Early admission may be granted to an applicant who has completed the junior year of high school and who is recommended for college by the principal or a counselor. A contract detailing specific arrangements for completing the requirements for high school graduation must be made among the student, the high school principal, and the SUNY Delhi Director of Admissions. For further information, contact the Admissions Office. Arrangements for this contract are the responsibility of the applicant.


Non-Matriculated Students

Non-matriculated simply means that a student has not been formally admitted to a degree or certificate program, but is enrolled in credit-bearing courses. Non-matriculated students should, at a minimum, have completed their junior year of high school. For further information, contact the SUNY Delhi Registrar's Office.

Students interested in non-credit courses or workshops, should contact the Office of Career and Business Development.



Applications for reentry or readmission must be received a minimum of 30 days prior to the start of the incoming semester. Forms are available at

In addition to the application process, transfer applicants must request official transcripts from all previously attended colleges, which must be submitted directly from those colleges to the Admissions Office at SUNY Delhi.

Transfer Credit Evaluation

SUNY Delhi accepts transfer credits from accredited institutions, the College-Level Examination Program (CLEP), the College Entrance Examination Board's Advanced Placement Examination (AP), Regents College Examinations, and the Armed Forces.

 Transfer credit evaluations are provided after a student has been accepted to the College.

Members of the Armed Forces may be eligible for additional transfer credit hours (PE and First Aid).

Armed Forces Credit

Some training courses provided by the Armed Forces may be the equivalent of college courses, and transfer credit may be obtained.
