    Alumni Admissions Nomination Form

    If you’re a SUNY Cortland graduate who knows a prospective student with the potential to succeed, the Alumni Admissions Committee wants to hear from you. This program is for first-year candidates who would thrive at SUNY Cortland but currently may not meet the College’s high admissions standards due to an obstacle or difficult life circumstance.

    Please complete the nomination form below to provide more details about this student’s academic and personal qualifications. The recommendation will be kept confidential. The Alumni Admissions Committee does not share nomination material with the applicant or his or her family. Additionally, this form will not become part of the student’s official file if he or she attends the university.

    • Nominee must be a current applicant for regular freshman admission for Fall 2024. Transfer students, Educational Opportunity Program candidates or students who have applied for the early action process are not eligible.
    • Nominee cannot be related to the alumnus or alumna completing the nomination.
