Admissions Requirements

Students are admitted to this program by several means that offer flexibility to meet the requirements of the degree. Students may successfully complete an A.A.S. degree program in agriculture, where required courses could transfer in the B.Tech. Dairy Management Program.

Students may also enter the program after completing transferable, college-level course work in either general education or technology-based courses, or transfer from other accredited institutions. This may require articulation agreements among other SUNY Institutions and Community Colleges. A minimum grade point average of 2.0 is required. All bachelor degree programs offered by the College must meet the State University of New York Board of Trustees mandated general education requirements.
