- Candidates must have a minimum of a high school diploma or high school equivalent.
- Students must be prepared to take Pre-Calculus Algebra (MATH 123). If a student does not meet the criteria, he/she will be required to take prerequisites in math. All students with high school diploma or high school equivalent will be required to take a placement examination to determine his/her standing.
- Students who graduate with a two year college degree in a program related area will be evaluated and awarded maximum credit to enable him/her to complete the (B. Tech) degree in two years. Transfer students from community colleges, universities or other institutions of higher learning with some coursework completed will be evaluated on case-by-case basis. Minimum grades of "C" for transfer provided the content is comparable to that offered at SUNY Canton.
- Refer to the table of high school course prerequisites for admission.
