Articulation agreements are available with SUNY Pre-Environmental Science and Forestry at Syracuse (environmental science), New York Chiropractic College, and SUNY Health Science Center at Syracuse (joint admission).

A minimum of 61 credit hours is required for graduation with a cumulative index of 2.0. Students must also have a cumulative index of at least 2.0 in mathematics and science sequence courses.

Alfred State liberal arts & sciences: math and science graduates may enter directly into the technology management BBA degree program.

This program offers two options: liberal arts & sciences: math & science or pre-environmental science & forestry. The first allows students the opportunity to concentrate in either math and/or science. This program is designed in such a way that the student and adviser work together to match courses at Alfred State with first- and second-year courses at the desired transfer school so that the student may enter a baccalaureate program as a full third-year student. Some typical fields of study which graduates choose to enter are mathematics, statistics, math or science education, physical education, biology, chemistry, physics, physical therapy, athletic training, engineering, pre-med, pre-vet, dentistry, or pharmacy.

A full-time student typically enrolls each semester in five courses which is equivalent to 15-18 credit hours. Most three-credit-hour courses meet Monday, Wednesday, and Friday for 50 minutes or Tuesday, Thursday for 1 hour 15 minutes. Four-credit-hour math courses meet four times per week, while lab science courses meet three times, with a two-four hour lab once a week.
