Students at Finger Lakes Community College will be able to transfer directly to SUNY Geneseo without an additional application, thanks to a cooperative admission agreement signed last week by the colleges’ presidents.

Cooperative admission agreement covers several majors

The agreement, which goes into effect during the fall 2022 semester, applies to psychology, education, accounting, biology, history, and sustainability studies majors.

Such cooperative programs help extend students’ education, often allowing them to complete more than one degree in a shorter period.

Finger Lakes Community College President Robert Nye and SUNY Geneseo President Denise Battles signed an agreement on Aug. 29 to establish a cooperative admission program, allowing FLCC students to transfer to Geneseo without an additional application.

Standing from left are Costos Solomou, SUNY Geneseo vice president for enrollment management; Ryan McCabe, FLCC associate vice president of academic technology and high impact practices; and Matthew Stever, FLCC director of admissions.

“Our partnership programs allow seamless transfer opportunities for students as they pursue their degrees,” said Costas Solomou, SUNY Geneseo vice president for enrollment management. “Cooperative programs also give students a competitive advantage over other candidates when it’s time to start their careers.”

“Cooperative admission agreements have great value for our students,” added FLCC President Robert Nye. “They simplify the transfer process for students and help them determine what classes to take in order to make the most of their time at FLCC.”
