Students who do not meet all of the above criteria will be evaluated for acceptance on a case-by-case basis. For more information, contact the Office of Recruitment and Admissions at 607-962-9151 or email

* For admission to specific majors, students will need to meet departmental admissions requirements found in the Alfred State catalog.
