Degree Prerequisites

The State University of New York moved to temporarily suspend SAT and ACT testing requirements for the 2021-22 cycles, as the coronavirus pandemic has upended the traditional school schedule for students.

SUNY Canton will not require SAT and ACT standardized testing for rising high school seniors enrolling in bachelor degree-granting campuses. The move will apply only to the spring 2021, fall 2021, and spring 2022 cycles only. SUNY campuses will still consider scores for students who have taken the examinations as part of their review.
