Please allow sufficient time as applications received after the deadline date will not be reviewed.

Please contact the PIE Center (518-442-3529) with questions regarding the entrance exam requirement. Your examination results are evaluated as a portion of the overall admission package and a lower score does not mean an automatic denial if the other elements of the application are strong.
