- Students must graduate from Westchester Community College.
- WCC students who graduate with an A.A. or A.S. or A.A.S. degree with a minimum GPA of 2.5 will be guaranteed acceptance to SUNY Poly and will transfer with junior standing. The only exception is for students transferring into the Nanoscale Engineering degree program which requires a 2.75 GPA.
