SUNY Geneseo has signed a teach-out contract with Medaille University, which announced its closing in May.

The teach-out agreement allows Medaille students to finish their studies at SUNY Geneseo with an expedited, free transfer process. Academic advisors will assist “Medaille University Legacy” students with selecting equivalent degree programs from our 145 degree programs in 52 majors. As part of the agreement, the cost for Medaille students to attend Geneseo will be equal to, or less than, what they paid to attend Medaille in 2022–23.

Students interested in learning more can visit our web page for Medaille students. Students who transfer to Geneseo and are residents of New York State can apply for the Excelsior Scholarship. Students that qualify will receive free tuition. Applications for Excelsior are open through August 31. In addition, applicants will be considered for merit-based scholarships at the time of admission.
