Note: International students and Fast Forward and Early College Programs have separate admissions criteria.

Admissions to Health Science Competitive Programs 

Entry into the following Health Science programs at SUNY Broome Community College is based on a competitive admissions process: Clinical Laboratory Technician, Dental Hygiene, Health Information Technology, Histological Technician Certificate, Medical Assistant, Nursing, Physical Therapist Assistant, and Radiologic Technology.

The Competitive Admissions process compares the academic strength of applicants to the academic preparation required for a specific Health Science program. An Admissions Committee assesses each applicant's academic background in either high school and/or college level math and science courses required for the Health Science program to which they have applied. Meeting the minimum math and science course background does not guarantee admission. Additional consideration will be given to Broome County residents and Veterans with honorable discharge from a military branch.

For entry into the fall semester, the Admissions deadline for application submission is March 1st. First round decision letters will be sent out by the end of March/early April. Applications for selected health science programs will continue to be considered after the March 1st deadline if seats become available.

Students lacking the necessary academic preparation for their chosen program may take preparatory courses through Health Studies or LA Individual Studies SUNY Broome Community College. These prerequisite courses will strengthen their academic background and allow applicants to reapply for a future semester. Advisement is available in Admissions and Academic Advising offices to assist students in selecting appropriate preparatory coursework.

Applicants with An Individualized Educational Plan (IEP) Diploma or Penn Foster

The New York State Education Department has ruled that both IEP and Penn Foster diplomas are different from a high school diploma in that they do not indicate a successful completion of high school study. Therefore, students who hold an IEP/Penn Foster diploma may not matriculate in a degree seeking program and will be evaluated on the same criteria used for students who lack a high school diploma or GED. 

Placement Assessment

Part-time students may be required to demonstrate basic skills competency for college level work by taking the placement assessment in reading, writing, and mathematics, unless otherwise specified by and Admissions waive, based on specific criteria. The scores from the assessments are evaluated along with high school grades/previously taken credits to enroll students in courses where they will have the best chance to succeed. Contact the Admissions Office +1 (607) 778-5001 or your advisor for testing information.

Early College Program

The Early College program is for high school and homeschool students who benefit from enrolling in college courses on the SUNY Broome Community College's main campus or online. Early College student scan enroll full or part-time, prior to graduating from their high school or homeschool instruction. This program is typically for seniors and juniors who are at least 16 years of age, and have maintained a high school course average of 80 or higher related to the college course they seek instruction at SUNY Broome Community College. Visit www.sunybroome.edu/earlycollege for the application process and additional information.

Fast Forward Program

The Fast Forward Program is for high school students who can benefit from enrolling in SUNY Broome Community College courses at their participating high school and earn college credit and high school college simultaneously. There is no cost to the student or high school for this program. The college courses are taught in the high school during the school day by college approved high school teachers in collaboration with SUNY Broome Community College academic department chairs and coordinators. Students receive advisement from their school counselor and register for Fast Forward courses in their high school classroom at the beginning of each school year with their high school teacher. General student eligibility for Fast Forward courses are at least an 85 average in the subject area of Fast Forward courses(s) they would like to register. Some Fast Forward courses may have specific requirements. Visit www.sunybroome.edu/ff for additional information.

Applicants Without A High School Diploma

Students who lack a high school or a general equivalency diploma (GED) may apply only for non-matriculation admission if their high school class has already graduated. 

Applicants who are admitted through this method may apply to New York State for an equivalency diploma after completion of 24 hours of college credits in these subject areas:

  • Six (6) credits in English language arts including writing, speaking and reading (literature)
  • Three (3) credits in mathematics
  • Three (3) credits in natural science
  • Three (3) credits in social science

Admission of Ex-Offender

Prior convictions of a felony do not prevent a student from applying or enrolling into a degree seeking program. Additionally, students are not required to disclose this information during the admissions process. Please note that certain programs have clinical or internship requirements that may be affected by previous convictions and therefore can impact degree completion. Students who have questions about this should contact the Admissions Office at +1 (607) 778-5001.


MMR Immunization Regulations

It is the intent of the administration of SUNY Broome Community College to comply and enforce the provisions of Public Health Law Article 21, Title IV, Section 2165-Immunization.

The International Student Services Office is available to counsel and assist students with academic, career and personal concerns.

F1 students are able to have college credits transferred to SUNY Broome Community College; Division Staff Associate or Department Chair, depending on degree program, will determine what courses are transferable for credit.


Academic Standards for Clinical Education

Academic Standards for Clinical Education in the Health Sciences programs require dismissal of students who fail to meet established academic objectives for the physical safety, psychological safety, and confidentiality of patients.

Students interested in Health Science curricula are advised to see the appropriate department chairperson upon admission to the program. Annual physical examination, including Mantoux and other testing, is required in most curricula.

OSHA standards

Although not required by either SUNY Broome Community College or the State University of New York, students enrolled in health science programs, where clinical experience or on-campus Dental Clinic is a curriculum requirement, should note that compliance with the OSHA Bloodborne Pathogen Standards is mandated.

The OSHA standards on Exposure to Bloodborne Pathogens require employees to either be vaccinated for hepatitis or to sign the appropriate form declining the vaccination. The standards do not mention students. Nonetheless, many affiliate health agencies are requiring students to comply with the regulations, and hepatitis vaccinations are strongly recommended by most Health Science curricula.


Full Opportunity Program

SUNY Broome Community College has a Full Opportunity Program, which is designed to give every individual a chance to fulfill his/her own personal goals and potential.

All Broome County applicants who have graduated from high school within the prior year, or applicants who have been released from active duty with the Armed Forces of the United States within the prior year, are given priority for admission until March 1 and are guaranteed admission to the College, but not necessarily assured of space in the programs of their choice.  To be admitted to any program of study, all applicants must meet the academic requirements of that program.  Students without the required academic background for a particular curriculum will be accepted into a program or selection of courses for which they qualify. Some students may require more than two years to complete a program of study.

SUNY Broome Community College does not discriminate on the basis of race, sex, color, religion, age, national origin, disability, marital status, sexual orientation, or status as a disabled veteran or veteran of the Vietnam era in the recruitment or education of students; the recruitment and employment of faculty and staff; or the operation of any of its programs or activities.  Where relevant, state and federal laws apply.


Transfer Credit

Transfer credits will be evaluated upon matriculation (acceptance) into a program.

It is the responsibility of the student to:

  • Request that an official transcript is sent to the Admissions Office at SUNY Broome Community College.

Transfer credit will be granted when a course applies to the certificate or degree program.

  • College level course credits earned at institutions that are regional, national, professional and specialized accrediting agencies, can be transferred to SUNY Broome Community College. The following accreditation agencies are recognized by the U.S. Secretary of Education or the Council for Higher Education:  Middle States Commission on Higher Education, New England Commission of Higher Education, Higher Learning Commission, Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities, Southern Association of Colleges and Schools, Western Association of Schools and Colleges.
     
  • Credits earned at a college that has a current articulation agreement with SUNY Broome Community College may also transfer to SUNY Broome Community College.
     
  • Grades of "C" (2.0) or higher are transferable if coursework is relevant to the student's program of study at SUNY Broome Community College. S (Satisfactory) and P (Pass) grades will also be considered, with the exclusion of certain competitive Health Science programs.
     
  • Remedial education and developmental education coursework is not transferrable.
     
  • In addition to 100 and 200 level coursework, 300 and 400 level coursework will be considered for transfer credit.
     
  • College credits are evaluated based on applicability to the program major of the student and on the catalog year the student is following. If the student's program is changed after arriving at SUNY Broome Community College, transfer credits will be re-evaluated based on the new program.
     
  • Transfer credit is based upon course equivalencies, including course levels, course descriptions, and learning outcomes. Course syllabus and textbooks used for the course may also be considered for transfer credit evaluation. At least 70% of the course content should be equivalent to transfer the credit. When the credit is transferrable but the course credit is less than the SUNY Broom Community College course, the remaining credit will need to be earned (waived) for program certification purposes.
     
  • When a course is accepted for transfer credit from another college, a grade of "T" will be noted on the transcript and degree evaluation. The "T" grade carries no point value; therefore, it is not considered when calculating the term, degree, or cumulative GPA. A grade of "T" is counted for attempted and earned hours.
     
  • Once transfer credit is accepted, and the student is enrolled after the start of the semester in which it was posted, it cannot be removed from the student's record.
     
  • Students need to check their MyCollege account to view the status of their transfer credit evaluation.
    • Student transcripts from previously attended institutions that were provided for admissions consideration become the property of SUNY Broome Community College and are considered official only at the time of receipt.  SUNY Broome Community College does not provide copies of transcripts from other institutions that are part of a student's education record. In order to obtain accurate up-to-date information and assure that no protocol of the issuing institution is circumvented, a student must contact the originating school for a copy of that transcript.

Advanced Placement (AP), CEEB Collee Level Examination (CLEP), and International Baccalaureate (IB)

  • AP (Advanced Placement) transcripts and CLEP (CEEB College Level Examination Program) scores must come directly from College Board. Contact CollegeBoard.org to requet an official copy to be sent to SUNY Broome Community College. Scores of 3 or higher on AP exams in applicable coures are acceptable.
     
  • International Baccalaureate (IB) credit is awarded for courses taken in high school with an HL designation and a score of 4 or higher. An IB transcript must be submitted to receive credit.

College courses taken in High School

  • If college courses were taken in high school, you must request an official transcript from the college through which those courses were taken in order for the credit to be evaluated.

Competitive Health Sciences

  • If a student has taken any course more than five years before entering into a competitive Health Science program, the course must be repeated.

General Education

  • General Education requirements vary by campus and by major. However, if you satisfy a SUNY-GER area at one SUNY campus with a grade of "C" or higher, you will have met that SUNY-GER area at every other SUNY campus.
     
  • More information concerning SUNY General Education Requirements, can be found on General Education Requirements - SUNY.

International Institution Credit Evaluations

  • If you earned credits at a college or university outside of the United States you must have your credits evaluated by a professional Credential Evaluation Agency. These agencies provide a professional course-by-course evaluation of college and university credits. Charges for this service may vary. Resources can be found on these websites: World Education Services and Educational Credential Evaluators.
  • International transcript evaluation must be conducted by a NACES recognized member as found on www.naces.org/members.html.

Military Service Credit

  • Credits earned through military service as recommended by the American Council on Education Registry are acceptable, as are other military credits, when applicable to the major. Appropriate military documents (DD214, military transcript) must be submitted to be considered for transfer credit.

Reverse Credit

  • Students who transfer from SUNY Broome Community College to another college or university without completing degree or certificate requirements will be permitted to transfer credit hours to SUNY Broome Community College for the fulfillment of graduation requirements. A maximum of 48 credits required for a degree program can be transferred from a regionally accredited college or university to SUNY Broome Community College.
