By completing courses in the liberal arts, education and an academic concentration, students will be able to achieve effective transfer to four-year programs leading to teacher certification in Adolescent Education (grades 7-12) by the State of New York. Concentrations include English, History/Social Studies, Math, Biology, Earth Science, Chemistry and Physics.
Many four-year institutions require specific course grades and degree GPA as part of the transfer application. For students interested in and preparing to transfer to a SUNY institution, please visit https://www.suny.edu/attend/get-started/transfer-students/suny-transfer-paths/.
Transfer credit is evaluated at the student’s request. Transfer credit will be awarded at the discretion of the department chair in accordance with the college and discipline specific departmental policies to support the educational plan made between the academic advisor and the student.
