Articulation Agreements & Dual Admissions

Genesee Community College has different types of articulation agreements with a variety of four year institutions, allowing you to easily transfer after graduation.

Articulation Agreement

An Articulation Agreement is an agreement that has been made between GCC and a four-year institution. It is designed to allow GCC students who complete an A.A. or A.S. degree to transfer into the four-year college with full junior status.

GCC has articulation agreements with the following institutions:

SUNY Institutions:

As part of the SUNY to SUNY Advantage, students earning an A.A. or A.S. degree and who have been accepted into parallel programs at a four year SUNY campus will receive full junior standing. In addition to programs covered under the SUNY to SUNY Advantage, GCC offers a number of additional articulations with institutions within the SUNY system. These agreements exist for A.A., A.S. and A.A.S. degrees, for details on these agreements please contact the Transfer Coordinator located in the Student Success Center at the Batavia Campus.

Private Institutions:

Dual Admissions Agreement

A Dual Admissions Agreement (also called a Joint Admissions agreement) is a unique method for transferring to a four-year school and completing a baccalaureate degree. It is designed for first-time, full-time students who know:

  • The associate's degree they want from GCC
  • What four-year degree they want
  • Where they want to earn that four-year degree

Students are simultaneously admitted to both GCC and the 4-year school at the start of their freshman year. Upon earning an associate's degree at GCC, the student begins immediately at the baccalaureate degree granting institution with full junior status (provided certain academic standards are fulfilled at both GCC and the 4-year institution).

Only certain academic degrees at both GCC and area four-year institutions are part of this program. Read the information on the Dual Admissions Programs page carefully to determine if this course of action is right for you.
