Saint Thomas Aquinas College

A. Design of the Program: STAC proposes a plan whereby students who have earned their Associate of Arts (A.A.)or Associate of Science (A.S.) degree from OCCC can enroll in an undergraduate program at STAC. This program will allow for students to transfer up to 60 credits from OCCC and require that all courses required for the undergraduate degree are satisfied. Students who have earned the Associate of Applied Science (A.A.S.) degree will be evaluated for transfer on an individual basis and the number of transferable credits will depend on the student's major. In addition to acceptance, students are guaranteed up to 65-70 transferable credits toward an applicable Bachelor of Science (B.S.) or Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) degree at St. Thomas Aquinas College. And finally, students who have earned their degree from SUNY Orange County Community College with a 3.0 Grade Point Average or above (on a 4.00 scale) will be awarded an Articulation Scholarship to cover a portion of tuition at St. Thomas Aquinas College. Housing on the STAC campus will be available for OCCC students who have been accepted for transfer into STAC.

Students seeking state certification in Teacher Education cannot be guaranteed completion of their degree with 60 additional credits at St. Thomas Aquinas due to ever-changing state certification requirements. These students are encouraged to apply for admission and will be given full consideration on a case by case basis for admission and applicable transfer credit. Any SUNY Orange Community College student is encouraged to seek counsel from STAC academic advisers regarding transfer to specific baccalaureate programs early in their community college careers. A special community college adviser at STAC is available for that specific purpose.

Students who wish to continue into a graduate program at STAC can be guaranteed admission into their desired graduate program (Master of Science in Teaching, Master of Science in Education, Master of Business Administration, Master of Public Administration in Criminal Justice Administration) provided they maintain at least a 3.0 cumulative GPA during their undergraduate tenure at STAC.

B. Routes of Entry: OCCC students who meet the established admissions criteria will need to apply through the STAC Office of Admissions once they complete their associate's degree (or are in their final semester at OCCC). All students must meet the standard transfer admissions requirements. Students who wish to continue into their respective graduate program must notify the Office of Admissions the semester before completion of the undergraduate degree. There is no additional application necessary.
