How to Apply
for Transfer Students

Step 1: Choose which application to complete

You may apply to SUNY-ESF using either The Common Application OR the SUNY Application, both available online. Then follow the directions for the application you choose outlined here.

  • NOTE: Transfers who have earned or will earn an A.A. or A.S. at a SUNY college must use the SUNY Application process to receive the SUNY transfer application fee waiver. Additionally, if you are applying for a cooperative "2+2" or "3+3" programs with Upstate Medical University, you must use the SUNY Application.

Step 2: Pay the application fee

A $50 non-refundable application fee or completed fee waiver must be submitted, as directed by the application process you have chosen to use, before your application will be forwarded to the SUNY-ESF Admissions Office.

Step 3: Send your transcripts

Request an official transcript from every college or educational institution you’ve attended, including your high school, be sent directly to the SUNY-ESF Admissions Office. You may also be asked to submit a mid-term grade report for your current semester. If you have earned less than 30 college credits at the time of application, your high school transcript and results of either the SAT I or ACT will be required for review by the Admissions Committee. All transfer applicants are required to submit an official final high school transcript or GED results to verify high school graduation or equivalent.
