Requirements for Admission

Admission to SUNY Poly is competitive. Admissions decisions are largely based on previous academic performance and college entrance tests; However, SUNY Poly practices a holistic approach to approval. We recognize that a student's success in college depends on many factors, and we include personal essays, letters of recommendation, and other supporting information in our decision-making process.

SUNY Poly will consider applicants for admission who do not meet the general eligibility criteria but who possess or have demonstrated specific talents (academic, athletic, technological, leadership, etc.). Upon request, admissions officers, teachers and athletic trainers can assess students' special abilities. Particularly talented applicants must formally prove their special talents and, if necessary, have an interview with the special talents admissions committee before a final admission decision is made. SUNY Poly participates in the Early Action and Equal Opportunity Program (EOP).

In the case of admission, the decision is provisional; Admitted students with self-reported academic transcripts and test scores are required to submit final transcripts and test scores for transcript assessment and diploma verification prior to enrollment. Students who are admitted with official certificates must also submit official final documents from ongoing courses for the diploma examination. Failure to comply with this requirement jeopardizes grant award and application status.

SUNY Poly reserves the right to reverse an admissions decision if the student fails to maintain academic progress as evidenced by graduation certificates or if the information conflicts with the original self-reported information.
