Those interested in applying to Downstate Programs go through the same admissions screening as do applicants to on-campus programs. All admissions decisions are made by full-time Alfred University faculty. Applicants should review the admissions requirements for off-campus programs as well as the Graduate School application process.
- Standardized tests (if applicable)
- Official transcripts
- Letters of recommendation
- Statement of intent
Applications may be obtained from CITE, directly from Alfred University's Office of Graduate Admissions, or on-line. Applicants whose written materials meet the basic requirements for admission will be interviewed periodically during the school year in Brooklyn and Oceanside. CITE will contact applicants to schedule interviews. All students who are admitted to the program begin classes only in the fall of each year. All application materials should be sent to the Graduate Admissions Office, Alfred University, Saxon Drive, Alfred, NY 14802 along with a $60 application fee.
Financial aid is available to Downstate students by applying directly to the Alfred University Office of Student Financial Aid. Downstate students who are registered for a minimum of 6 credits per semester are eligible for financial aid in the form of loans. The Alfred University Office of Student Financial Aid qualifies eligible individuals for financial aid when they apply. However, due to federal regulations, loan checks cannot be released to students until they begin attending their second class each semester.
