SUNY Transfer Application Fee Waivers

If a student has a degree or plans on having a degree from Mohawk Valley Community College (or any other SUNY Community College), they can apply to 4 SUNY Institutions for FREE. They do this by filling out the SUNY Online Application. If a student fills out any other application (Common Application, Universal Application) they will still need to pay. Within the application, they will be asked “Do you or will you hold an associate degree from a New York State public college prior to enrollment?”. As long as they answer YES to that question, they will have the ability to choose the “Transfer Fee Waiver” payment option on the payment screen.

If a student is NOT graduating from MVCC, they may STILL be able to apply for free if the application fee proves to be a financial hardship. There is a form they can print and fill out. This form has the criteria listed (household income vs. # of people in family). If they meet the criteria, the student would need to take that form to Financial Aid who will verify the information via the student’s FAFSA form and sign off on it.

If you or any students have any questions about Application Fee Waivers, or anything in general about the transfer process, please feel free to contact Mike Henningsen.
