Physical Education Studies
SUNY Cortland Partnership
The Physical Education Studies program at SUNY Delhi has a unique transfer agreement with the Physical Education program at SUNY Cortland. This Dual Admission Agreement affords students the opportunity to transfer seamlessly into the BSE Physical Education program at SUNY Cortland following the successful completion of their SUNY Delhi Physical Education degree (AS). Under this agreement, those students who are accepted into the Dual Admission program, and who complete their AS degree requirements in Physical Education Studies with an overall grade point average of 2.5 or higher, are guaranteed admission to the SUNY Cortland Physical Education program. Because of the unique design of this curriculum, those students transferring to SUNY Cortland are accepted with full Junior status. Not all students applying for admission to the Physical Education Studies at SUNY Delhi will be accepted into this Dual Admission Agreement. The agreement is offered to a maximum of 25 incoming freshmen per year.
The application process for the Physical Education Studies program at SUNY Delhi is two-tiered. The first tier represents requirements for acceptance into the Physical Education Studies program at Delhi, while the second tier represents requirements for acceptance into the Dual Admission program with SUNY Cortland. The requirements for acceptance to the Physical Education Studies program at SUNY Delhi (Program option 68) consist of an overall high school average of 75 and the successful completion of both Math A and Biology. For consideration of acceptance into the Dual Admission Agreement Physical Education Studies program with SUNY Cortland (Program option 68C) the applicant must have an overall high school average of 78 and must achieve a minimum grade of 75 in both Math A and Biology (Living Environments) Regents.
Although the student's application is reviewed at two levels, it should be noted that all the program coursework remains the same for each student regardless of acceptance placement. While the agreement was initially intended to aid the transferability of a select group of students, it has enhanced the opportunities for all SUNY Delhi Physical Education Studies students.
