Transfer Opportunities

According to the Census Bureau, people with Bachelor's degrees have lower rates of unemployment than those with less education. More than 30% of Americans ages 25 and older have earned a Bachelor’s degree.

After earning an Associate degree, you can use your college credits toward a Bachelor’s degree — either in Queensbury at the Regional Higher Education Center or at a number of colleges that offer “2 plus 2” transfer programs. You can transfer from SUNY Adirondack to other four-year schools within the SUNY system or other private colleges and universities to complete your final two years of a Bachelor’s degree.

SUNY Adirondack students have the opportunity to take advantage of several unique dual admission and seamless transfer degree programs, completing the first two years of a Bachelor’s degree at SUNY Adirondack while choosing from some of the best schools in the region to complete a four-year degree in specific degree programs, including:

  • SUNY Plattsburgh
  • Paul Smith’s College
  • Siena College
  • The College of Saint Rose
  • The University of Albany

Be sure to talk with a transfer counselor in the SUNY Adirondack Counseling Center for up-to-date transfer information and help.
