The State University of New York (SUNY) was founded at Potsdam, New York in 1816. Years later, the Morrill Act of 1862 led to the creation of four Ivy League land-grant SUNY colleges, which now currently exist at Cornell University. SUNY was officially established in February 1948 when New York became the 48th state, of the then 48 states, to create a state university system. SUNY initially represented a consolidation of 29 unaffiliated institutions, including 11 teachers colleges. All of these colleges, with their unique histories and backgrounds, united for a common goal: To serve New York State. Since 1948 SUNY has grown to include 64 individual colleges and universities that were either formerly independent institutions or directly founded by the State University of New York.

SUNY Transfer Guarantee
The Transfer Guarantee Program was established on November 29, 1972 by the Board of Trustees of the State University of New York for the purpose of better serving students who choose to begin their college education at a two-year State University of New York or City University of New York campus. The goal of the Transfer Guarantee Program is to provide the applicant an opportunity to continue full-time study at a four-year University college when transferring directly from a University or City University two-year college with an Associate in Arts (A. A.) or an Associate in Science (A. S.) degree.
