Engineering Technology


Admission to an Engineering Technology Department

The engineering technology entrance requirements at Alfred State are primarily focused on the student's overall GPA from 9th-11th grade. A C+ average (75-80) is the recommended minimum high school average for consideration for entry to associate degree programs. A B to B+ average is recommended for bachelor applicants. Applicants below these requirements may be offered admission through alternative programs. These are not absolute since other variables are considered, primarily, strength of academic track and math background. The engineering technology programs require three years sequential math through algebra II and trigonometry. SAT's are strongly encouraged for associate degree applicants and are required for bachelor applicants unless the student has successfully completed appropriate college-level coursework. A combined SAT score (critical reading and math) of 1000 for SAT's taken prior to March 2016; or 1080 for the new SAT's beginning March 2016; or an ACT score of 21 is recommended for bachelor applicants. Letters of recommendation are sometimes needed, in which case we will request. The SUNY application fee is $50.00 and admissions are considered on a rolling-admissions basis until the program is filled or by the 5th day of classes.
