Community College Transfer Agreements

While you may transfer to Caz from any college, we have established Transfer Agreements with several community colleges to ease the transition from a 2-year college to a 4-year college.

The agreements assure admission to Cazenovia College at junior status by following the directed sequence of coursework leading to an associate degree from a partnering community college. A full-time student can then complete the specific Cazenovia College degree in two years as long as the required coursework is followed with minimum passing grades.

Take a look at our Transfer Agreements to see if one fits your academic goals.

Course Credit Evaluation

Transferology takes the mystery out of how the college credits you have already earned apply to a Cazenovia College degree. For a transcript evaluation please submit your transcript(s) to your counselor through email.


When applying or renewing your FAFSA, students must include Cazenovia College's federal school code (002685). Students are encouraged to complete, sign and submit the FAFSA. (Learn more about submitting your FAFSA.)
