Yes, we do accept many AP/CLEP/IB and college-level courses. We require an official transcript from AP/CLEP/IB or college transcripts to be sent to the Office of Enrollment Services. The transcript will be evaluated by our transfer adviser. More information on transferring credits to Alfred State can be found on the Transfer Students page.
Information on activities is useful in providing additional information and a more complete picture of the applicant. However, courses taken and grades received are the major factor in determining the admissions decision.
Letters of recommendation and a personal essay are recommended if there is additional information you would like to share or extenuating circumstances which may have affected your academic background. At times the Admissions Office may ask for additional information including letters of recommendation and a personal essay.
SAT or ACT scores are required for students applying for a baccalaureate-level program. On the SAT exam we look for a 1000 combined score on the Math and Critical Reading section. On the ACT exam we look for a composite score of 21 or better. At this time we are not looking at the writing portion of the SAT or ACT for admission purposes. We do not require students to take any SAT subject tests. Students applying for an associate-level program are not required to submit SAT or ACT scores. However we encourage all students to submit one or both of these standardized test scores.
Students who wish to be considered for some scholarships and intercollegiate sports must also submit SAT/ACT scores.
Students wishing to be considered for the Bachelor of Architecture program are recommended to have a SAT score of 1100 (Critical Reading and Math) or an ACT composite score of a 24.
