Current high school students who are applying using the SUNY application must also complete the SUNY supplemental application. This form can be submitted through the SUNY website or accessed by going to the Alfred State College website.

High school graduates who have not attended a postsecondary institution must submit an essay directly to the Alfred State College Admissions Office.

A high school transcript must be supplied to the Admissions Office. Students attending high school in one of the five boroughs of New York City may submit their transcript by entering their NYC DOE OSIS number on the SUNY application. This is a nine-digit number issued to all students who attend a New York City public school and can be found on the student ID card or transcript.

Applicants with previous college experience must submit an official college transcript from all institutions attended.

Additional information to explain special or extenuating circumstances is encouraged.

Applications for the next calendar year are available beginning Aug. 1. Fall semester application decisions are mailed starting mid-October and continue on a rolling basis according to space availability. Spring semester applications for those programs open for spring admission (contact the Alfred State College Admissions Office) are also considered on a rolling basis according to availability of space.

The priority application deadline for the diagnostic medical sonography and radiologic technology majors is Dec. 1; it is Jan. 1 for spaces in the Nursing I clinical course.  Applications received after these dates will be evaluated on a rolling basis.

Students with disabilities should contact the Admissions Office to inquire about special accommodations to assist them with the application process and paperwork.

Consistent with college policy, any deliberate falsification or omission of data on any admissions document may result in denial of admission, revocation of acceptance decision, or administrative dismissal from the college.
