Entrance Requirements and Recommendations

Requirements

The Committee on Admissions considers the following factors most important: rigor of high school curriculum, grades, standardized test results of the American College Test (ACT) or the Scholastic Aptitude test (SAT I), extracurricular involvement, and letters of recommendation.

Students will be considered for admission if they are secondary school graduates in a college preparatory program, or when they submit evidence of having completed an equivalent degree of education. The secondary school program should include a minimum of 16 academic units. Each academic division of the University requires a different distribution, as follows:

School of Engineering:

4 units of English
4 units of college preparatory mathematics preferred
3 units of laboratory science (biology, chemistry and physics preferred
2-3 units of social studies and history

The remainder of the 16 academic units should be earned in a foreign language or computer science.

An application fee of $50 is required.

The University admits to programs of graduate study those students who present satisfactory evidence of the ability to perform creditably at the graduate level. Applicant qualifications are judged by the School of Engineering graduate admissions committee. An application fee of $60 is required.

Recommendations

The Undergraduate program requires submission of a letter of recommendation, usually completed by the high school guidance counselor.

The Graduate Program requires two letters of recommendation from former instructors or employers.�

College Description

Engineering College Description and Special Characteristics

Alfred University represents a special blending of private and public financing. The College of Ceramics, with Schools of Art/Design and Engineering, is one of the statutory units of the State University of New York and, as such, is funded by the State; administratively, however, the College is an integral part of Alfred University. The remainder of the University is privately financed and consists of the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences and the College of Business. The School of Engineering has the largest graduate program in Ceramics in the nation with state-of-the-art research equipment and facilities and is run mainly with private industry and government agency resources. Scholes Library is internationally recognized for the strength of its holdings in science, engineering, and technology; its traditional book and journal collections are supplemented by state-of-the-art access to digital information resources. The library occupies a new four-story building with a wide variety of computer equipment and private study carrels for graduate students.

The following text was offered to each school as a guideline for the calculation of externally-funded research expenditures:

Include all expenditures associated with grants and contracts specifically budgeted for externally sponsored research and associated programs and expenditures associated with all gifts auditably used for research. Include expended funds provided by the following external sources:

  1. Federal Government
  2. State Government
  3. Foreign Governments
  4. Industry
  5. Non-Profit Organizations (e.g. foundations)
  6. Individuals
  7. Local Government

The expenditures reported should be only those funds provided by organizations, agencies, and individuals external to the institution. Cost sharing/matching funds should be included only if provided from sources external to the institution.

Only State government funds that were obtained competitively or as matching funds associated with other externally funded programs should be included. State funds that are part of the normal operating budget should not be included regardless of purpose.

For all joint or contracted projects or sub-projects, only the portion of the center research performed by faculty, staff, and students of the affiliated engineering school should be credited to that school. Expenditures for capital costs of research laboratory building construction should not be included.

Expenditures for research laboratory renovations should not be included unless the renovation funds expended came from grants and contracts expressly intended for the direct support of engineering research.

Any portion of academic year and/or summer salary for any researcher that is not derived from external research grants or contracts should not be counted.

Total #: Report total number of individual grants, not the total dollar amount of the expenditures.

Expenditures: Report actual expenditures (as opposed to authorization amounts) in U.S. dollars.

Time frame for expenditures: Report expenditures for your current fiscal year.

Research centers listed as "WITHIN an engineering department" on the Research Centers page (screen 7) of the College of Engineering Profile, will not have their expenditures added to the school's total research expenditures. Such expenditures can be included in the department total, while still being listed for the appropriate center. This allows users to list the expenditures in two areas without double-counting.
