    Hi all,

    I just found out last week that my application to SUNY has been on hold for the past few months because they are not recognizing my transcripts. They just let me know about it when I checked in. If I hadn't checked in, they likely would have ignored my application completely.

    The transcript is a "parent" county community college transcript with smaller city community college information included within the transcript. SUNY is requesting that I just give them "the original institution" of the smaller college, but that is not how these transcripts are written.

    I am surprised that they are splitting hairs like this and am unsure of how to give them the information they want. I am also troubled that they were not proactive about this misunderstanding because I have largely missed out on a fair shot for consideration.

    I would recommend that anyone who has not heard from them at all check in because you could have been lost in an administrative misunderstanding that was ignored instead of dealt with. Also, if anyone has contact information for someone that I can talk or write to I would be really appreciative.

    Good luck everyone!

    Are you referring to SUNY Downstate?

    Oh no! That sucks. I hope that gets sorted out. Is this Downstate? I have a contact email.
