CONGRATULATIONS! YOU’re accepted!
A few things to keep in mind:
Transfer Advisement Day
Once you are admitted and have paid your deposit, the next step is to sign up for a Transfer Advisement Day. Several different Transfer Advisement Days are set aside before the beginning of Fall and Spring semesters. These events fulfill a number of important functions, including:
•Welcoming you to the College
•Establishing your Math Placement level
•Providing a tour of Campus facilities (including residence halls)
•Obtaining your Saint Rose I.D. card
•Giving you important information on the advising, course-selection, and online registration process
•Introducing you to a number of important campus resources
•Offering an individual appointment with your advisor
•Ensuring that you receive the appropriate courses for the coming semester
Transfer Credit Equivalency
After you are admitted, your transfer credit equivalency will be completed by the Registrar’s Office in accordance with our Transfer Policy. A copy will be mailed to you and you will also be able to see how your transferred credits apply towards your degree by logging in to the Secure Site and viewing your Academic Progress Report. You may also visit the Transfer Equivalency Database to see how courses will transfer from area Community Colleges.
Math Placement Testing
Students entering The College of Saint Rose as first-year or as transfer students are required to take a math placement test unless:
A student enters the College with a “C-” or better in College Algebra, Pre-Calculus, or a Calculus course which carries college credit. (note: Math/Science majors/concentrators are encouraged to take the Math Placement if they are only transferring in college algebra)
A student enters the College with a “3” or better on an Advanced Placement test in Calculus.
If you meet either of the above two requirements, you may register for any mathematics course at The College of Saint Rose for which you meet the pre-requisites. If you do not meet the above two requirements, you must take a math placement test at the Transfer Advisement Day.

Transfer 2 Transfer: A Peer Mentoring Program
Saint Rose has a program available to help ease the transition of new transfer students by having a mentor who can answer questions, provide support, offer guidance, and encourage new transfer students to move in the right direction. As a new student we understand that you may have questions but may not want to ask faculty, staff or administrators so we have asked students who have transferred previously to be peer mentors and they were excited about the opportunity; many of them commented they wished they had a mentor when they started at The College of Saint Rose.
A peer mentor offers advice, responds to questions and provides information about the campus and community resources to new transfer students. Mentees are paired with mentors who share academic and/or extracurricular interests. Mentors are expected to make contact with their mentees at least once a week for eight weeks. This contact can be through phone calls, emails or texting. Mentors will simply be providing information about campus activities/events and responding to new transfer students questions. Peer mentors and mentees are also encouraged to meet face-to-face for a cup of coffee, lunch in the dining hall, or participation in a campus activity, the number of contacts you have with your mentor is up to you.
