WCC/Farmingdale State College Dual Admissions Pathway Agreement
Minimum Cumulative GPA Required: Varies by major
Associate’s Degree Required: Yes
Learning Format: In person and online options
Dual Admissions Pathway Agreement Highlights:
- Students who select the dual admissions pathway at the time they begin their studies at WCC will automatically be accepted into FSC.
- Students who have been admitted into the Dual Admissions Program and have paid their Farmingdale State College tuition deposit by the appropriate deadline will be pre-registered and given the same priority in registering for classes as FSC continuing students.
- Students will receive periodic information about activities at FSC and about their intended program. They will be welcome to visit FSC to tour the campus, attend academic, cultural, and athletic events, participate in all orientation activities, and/or meet on an individual basis with advisors.
- FSC will provide opportunities for students to visit the FSC campus and stay in touch with them throughout their two years at WCC.
Students who are not initially eligible for the Dual Admissions pathway will be fully accepted to FSC based on the following conditions:
- Students who have a GPA of 2.5-3.0 or higher, meet the stipulated program requirements, and have submitted their final official college transcripts from all colleges attended.
General Agreement Highlights:
- Grades earned in major courses must be at least a C or better to transfer.
- A minimum of 60 credits from the associate degree will be applied toward the completion of the articulated bachelor’s degree program.
- If all credits do not count for requirements in the major, they will then count as elective credit toward the degree.
- If a student follows the pathway as written in the agreement appendix and meets all the requirements, all courses completed at WCC will be accepted at FSC. Students will receive a transfer credit evaluation at the time of admission.
- Any student who completes an A.A. or A.S. at W.C.C. will have all lower level general education/core requirements waived by FSC and will not be required to take any additional lower level general education/core requirements. This applies to all accepted students, regardless of whether a program-to-program equivalency exists. It should be noted that FSC has a campus graduation requirement that all students take EGL 102 Composition II: Writing About Literature and earn a C or better. If this course, or its equivalent, has not been satisfactorily completed before matriculation at FSC, a student must complete that course at FSC. Additional general education courses may also be required as a part of specific program requirements.
- Students with an A.A.S. degree may have additional lower level general education/core requirements at the receiving institution.
FSC will dedicate a range of scholarship funds and awards to students in the dual admissions program who matriculate as full-time students at FSC. Each student in the dual admissions program will be automatically considered for grants or scholarship aid based on their academic profile, GPA, intended program of study, and level of need.
