Whether you’re transferring from a small community college or a large university, Oneonta is a great place to continue your academic journey. In fact, 30% of our full-time students began their studies at Oneonta as transfers.

Our five schools offer 70 majors, 71 minors and seven pre-professional programs, each designed to prepare students for successful careers or grad school. We’re the perfect size: big enough to be exciting, and small enough to be personal. On campus, you’ll get the best of both academic worlds: small classes and personal attention, plus top-notch facilities, like our digital planetarium, professional TV studio and human anatomy lab.

Our campus community is warm and welcoming, with more than 130 student organizations matching a variety of interests. To help you make a smooth transition to life at Oneonta, our Office of New Student Services offers special Transfer Traditions programs and events, as well as a Facebook group for transfer students.

We invite you to come for a visit, and if Oneonta seems like the right place for you, we look forward to working with you on your application. Connect with us at any time along the way—we’re here to help!

"One of my best experiences so far was getting to travel to New Orleans in February with a class for the wetlands restoration trip. We spent a week in the wetlands, being immersed in the culture there. It was an incredible time with even better people--an experience I surely won’t forget. I am returning next year to be a TA on the trip."
