SUNY and the “Writing Component”

While SUNY recognizes the importance of writing at both the collegiate and professional levels, we need to look at more data before decisions can be made on how the writing sections can be utilized.

Advanced Placement (AP®)

The Advanced Placement Program® is a cooperative educational endeavor between secondary schools and colleges and universities. Students who participate in the program not only gain college-level skills, but in many cases they also earn college credit while they are still in high school. Check with individual SUNY campuses for their credit and placement policies.

International Baccalaureate(IB)

SUNY Colleges and Universities welcome International Baccalaureate Diploma students. If students have not earned the IB diploma, individual courses earned through the IB Program will be considered for advanced standing or college credit. 

In order to be considered for college-level credit, the individual courses must be at the Higher Level (HL) and usually require a minimum score of 4 or 5. The Admissions Office will need an official score report. Check with individual campuses for their credit and placement policies.

Ability to Benefit (ATB)

Used by Community Colleges

Students applying for federal and New York State financial aid must possess a high school diploma or a recognized GED, or must demonstrate the ability to benefit from college level training. Students seeking financial aid who do not possess a high school diploma or GED must pass an entrance exam, an instrument approved by the State Education Department to be a measure of a student's ability to benefit from post-secondary training.

SUNY Colleges require various approved tests for students to prove the ability to benefit at the college level.

Slide17 l.jpg

Placement Testing 2006 cohort

SUNY campuses may require placement testing for freshmen in English and Mathematics. These tests allow incoming students to demonstrate their proficiency in the basic skills of reading, writing and mathematics.

The campuses use various assessment tests to determine if special course work must be taken in English, reading and/or mathematics.

Many SUNY colleges have exemption criteria for students who have already demonstrated proficiency in these areas.
