    Under the transfer policies of the SUNY Board of Trustees, New York State residents who are graduates of A.A. and A.S. degree programs at Schenectady County Community College are guaranteed an opportunity to continue their education on a full-time basis at a SUNY baccalaureate campus. Graduates of parallel programs shall be accorded full junior status, shall be granted full credit for general education courses taken at SCCC, and shall be given the opportunity to complete the bachelor's degree within four additional semesters of full-time work. In order to be eligible for transfer under this guarantee, students must have submitted all required materials by March 1 for the fall semester, and October 1 for the spring semester.
