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 Student Records and Financial Services Office. 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 factors in determining the admissions decision.
A personal essay is required for current high school students and for graduates who have not attended college. At times, the Admissions Office may ask for additional information including letters of recommendation.
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 sections. On the ACT exam we look for a composite score of 21 or better. At this time we are not considering 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 should have a SAT score of 1100 (critical reading and math) or an ACT composite score of a 24.
New students will need to fill out the SUNY application. The SUNY application is available at www.suny.edu . In order to consider your application for admission, we require an official high school transcript. Students who have completed college-level coursework should also supply official college transcripts. In some cases there may be additional information needed.
