A felony in New York State law is defined as a crime for which more than one year in prison may be imposed. The felony question applies if you have been convicted as an adult. If you have been adjudicated as having juvenile delinquent or youthful offender status, you are required to respond to the felony question below by indicating a response of no.

Suspension is defined as a sanction imposed for disiclinary reasons that results in a student leaving school for a fixed time period, less than permanently. Dismissal from a college for disciplinary reasons is defined as a permanent seperation from an institution of higher education based on the basis of conduct or behavior.

An affirmative response to either question will not automatically prevent admission, but you will be asked by your college choices to provide additional information. This information will be reviewed by a campus committee to ensure campus safety. Any falsification or omission of data may result in a denial of admission or dismissal.
