High School Transcript/GED Diploma
All applicants must have their high school send an official transcript to the Office of Admissions located in the Administration Building Room 210. Official Transcripts may be sent by mail or by email to HSTranscript@sunywcc.edu. Current high school students must submit an official final transcript with date of graduation or bring their original diploma to the college upon graduation as well. High School Equivalency Diploma recipients must submit their original GED Diploma and scores.
Applicants who have attended a prior college must have an official college transcript sent to the Transfer Credit Evaluator in the Registrar’s Office located in the Administration Building Room 107. Colleges that are members of the Credentials eScrip-Safe Network (click here for list of participating colleges) may have their transcripts emailed directly from their former college to eTrans@sunywcc.edu.
Placement testing is required of all new full-time students. The results are used by Academic Counselors to place you into appropriate courses. Click here to view more information about placement testing.
