AS Enters Into Articulation Agreements With Variety of Institutions

Alfred State (AS) has entered into articulation agreements with a variety of institutions, including high schools, community colleges, and master-degree-granting universities, in order to promote the easy transfer of qualified students between those institutions and Alfred State.

“We are excited about these opportunities to strengthen ties with our colleagues in higher education,” notes Charles V. Neal, associate vice president for Academic Affairs. “By working together, we can offer our students the finest education and the most efficient delivery.”

Among the most recent are an agreement between AS and Pioneer High School, Arcade, allowing interested Pioneer High School students who successfully complete six hours of veterinary technology elective credits and meet all academic standards required for admission into Alfred State to transfer those credits into the College’s veterinary technology program. Additionally, Broome-Tioga BOCES, Binghamton, has entered into an agreement with Alfred State whereby BOCES students who successfully complete its two-year animal science program and meet all academic standards required for admission into Alfred State, will receive six hours of veterinary technology elective credits.

Additionally, several community colleges have entered into agreement with AS, establishing articulation into Alfred State’s baccalaureate nursing program. Among those colleges are Finger Lakes Community College, Monroe Community College, Jamestown Community College, Erie Community College, Mohawk Valley Community College, and Genesee Community College.

Through the terms of these agreements, Alfred State agrees to accept, as third- year students, those individuals who have successfully completed the associate degree level nursing program at their respective community colleges.

Other agreements with community colleges include one whereby students graduating from any associate in applied science (AAS), associate in science (AS), or associate in arts (AA) program fulfilling a minimum of five SUNY (State University of New York) general education categories at Erie Community College may enter into Alfred State’s technology management baccalaureate program (BBA) and meet all academic standards required for admission into Alfred State will be accepted by AS with full junior status.
