SUNY Buffalo State
Section I
Summary
This agreement continues the Articulation Agreement program between Erie
Community College and SUNY Buffalo State. Students accepted to specific
academic majors at Erie Community College are eligible to enroll in this cooperative
program. Students selected for the Articulation Agreement program must be
matriculated students at Erie Community College. Further, students will, upon
completion of the prescribed sequence of courses leading to an associate’s degree
from Erie Community College, immediately continue their studies at SUNY Buffalo
State with the understanding that they will be given the opportunity to complete all
requirements in a parallel baccalaureate degree program in four semesters of full-time
study at SUNY Buffalo State unless otherwise specified by the program of study (see
appendix 2). This assumes the completion of the required credit hours, required
grade point average (GPA), and required pre-requisite courses.
Such students may select any Buffalo State major designated as parallel to their
chosen major at Erie Community College as indicated in Appendix 2. A list of Erie
Community College’s major programs and corresponding SUNY Buffalo State
programs are listed in Appendix 2. With few exceptions, students who wish to
change their major upon enrolling at SUNY Buffalo State may do so after their first
semester at SUNY Buffalo State and with the understanding that they may need more
than four additional full-time semester to earn their baccalaureate degree. Students
who wish to change their major at Erie Community College after submitting the
Intent to Enroll form will be reviewed to determine if they are eligible for the
Articulation program and, if approved, may need more than four additional full-time
semester to earn their baccalaureate degree.
Section II Identifying Potential Students
Students can indicate their interest in pursuing a bachelor’s degree at SUNY Buffalo
State to the transfer office at Erie Community College when they either submit their
application for admission to, at any time during their first year, or prior to the
completion of no more than 30 credits at Erie Community College. At the time the
student indicates their interest in attending SUNY Buffalo State in conjunction with
the Articulation Agreement, the transfer office at Erie Community College will
supply a copy of the Intent to Enroll form to the student or direct them to the
website at SUNY Buffalo State where they will be able to print the form.
Students selected will normally be first-time students at Erie Community College
with no prior credits. However, at the discretion of Erie Community College, some
returning students, or those who earned college credit while attending high school,
may be allowed entry into the program. At the time a student indicates their interest
in the Articulation program, he/she will be reviewed for eligibility and will receive a
letter from the Director of Admissions at SUNY Buffalo State, establishing their
eligibility to matriculate in a parallel baccalaureate program, listed in Appendix 2,
upon completion of degree requirements approved at Erie Community College.
Section III Application Requirements
Erie Community College students interested in the articulation agreement program
are not required to file an application for admission to SUNY Buffalo State.
However, students who anticipate enrolling at SUNY Buffalo State under the
auspices of this agreement must file an Intent to Enroll form with the office of
admissions at SUNY Buffalo State no later than the established deadlines prior to
matriculation at the college. The Intent to Enroll form must be on file by February
1st for the summer and fall terms; and by October 1st for the spring term.
A tuition deposit will not be required of participants who have filed the Intent to
Enroll form by the designated date. However, students who wish to reside in the
campus residence halls will be required to submit a $100 housing deposit by June 1st
for the fall semester and will be billed for the spring semester at the time of spring
registration.
Section IV Entrance Requirements
Admission requirements into the major, including courses required for entry into the
major and/or pre-requisites for the major, must be completed and be present on the
transcript from Erie Community College at the time the student files an Intent to
Enroll form showing that the student earned the minimum grade required for the
course(s). Major course requirements for the bachelor’s degree will be those in effect
at the time the student formally registers at SUNY Buffalo State. The candidate must
meet the required grade point average to enter into the major at SUNY Buffalo State.
At no point will Erie Community College students be expected to meet a higher grade
point average requirement than that required of internal students at SUNY Buffalo
State.
Section V
Housing
Erie Community College students will be guaranteed on-campus housing at SUNY
Buffalo State during all four semesters at SUNY Buffalo State. However, students
are not required to live on campus.
Section VI Student Academic Advisement
Erie Community College will assume responsibility for coordinating advisement for
students who participate in the articulation agreement program. The department audit
system, transfer course equivalency table, and curriculum sequence sheets will be
used as the mechanism for communicating degree requirements to students.
Curriculum sequence sheets will be available on SUNY Buffalo State’s website
http://www.buffalostate.edu/admissions/transfer.xml#transferring. They will include
a list of courses to be taken at Erie Community College, the equivalent of those
courses from Erie Community College, and a list of remaining courses that will be
required to fulfill baccalaureate degree requirements at SUNY Buffalo State.
Equivalencies will be reviewed annually and appropriate revisions made if either
institution adds, deletes, or changes course offerings.
Staff members from SUNY Buffalo State will provide an information workshop/
advisement for students in the articulation agreement program. New students are
strongly encouraged to contact the department of their intended major at SUNY
Buffalo State prior to registration for their first full-time semester. Whenever
possible, SUNY Buffalo State will provide on-site support to Erie Community
College students.
In addition, SUNY Buffalo State agrees to provide a training session, upon request,
for the faculty and staff at Erie Community College who will be involved in
consulting with and advising students enrolled in this program.
Students who have completed 30 credit hours of non-remedial coursework at Erie
Community College may take one major course per semester at SUNY Buffalo State
in order to fulfill an elective or major requirement during their third and/or fourth
semester of study at Erie Community College. The student must have earned the
minimum GPA required by the department of study at SUNY Buffalo State and be
registered as a full time student during that semester at Erie Community College.
Certain courses may require the approval of the appropriate chairperson at SUNY
Buffalo State. The course selection is at the direction of the department in which they
plan to earn their baccalaureate degree at SUNY Buffalo State. Cross-registration
forms would need to be completed and are available in the registration/records office
at the community college.
Section VII Information Sharing
Student information data will be provided to the designated Buffalo State Admissions
liaison at the time the student indicates his/her interest in SUNY Buffalo State so that
literature and other relevant information can be sent to students while they are
attending Erie Community College.
An initial official copy of the student’s transcript from Erie Community College will
be submitted to SUNY Buffalo State Office of Admissions no later than the deadline
for submission of the Intent to Enroll form. The student will provide official student
transcripts from all previous colleges and/or documentation of advanced credit to
SUNY Buffalo State as requested.
The Intent to Enroll form will serve as the release form for the student’s transcripts
from Erie Community College for:
1. An official transcript to be submitted with, or by the deadline for submission
of, the Intent to Enroll form.
2. An official transcript upon completion of the courses for the Associate Degree
at Erie Community College with the degree posted.
Section VIII
Time Frame and Provisions for Program Review
