Admissions

Admission to SUNY Delhi is based on an applicant's academic qualifications, and is made without regard to the race, color, creed, age, sex, national origin, marital status, disability, or handicap of an individual. Admission will be offered to qualified applicants whose academic preparation and experience indicate that there is a reasonable chance for success in their chosen curricula.

Applications are received on a rolling basis. However, students are encouraged to apply early, particularly to popular programs of study such as Nursing, Applied Technologies, and Veterinary Science Technology.

The credentials of each applicant are evaluated on an individual basis based on academic standards set by the College faculty. Students are admitted to specific curricula, and admission varies according to space available.

Candidates are encouraged to include as many college-preparatory courses as possible in their high school program. Applicants with strong academic backgrounds have an advantage over those who have completed less rigorous high school programs, particularly where the number of applicants for programs exceeds the available space.

How to Apply

U.S. citizens and permanent residents may apply by:

  1. Obtaining a SUNY application form from any New York State high school guidance office, by completing the SUNY Delhi Application online at www.delhi.edu, or by writing to the Enrollment Services Office, State University of New York, College of Technology at Delhi, Delhi, New York 13753.
  2. Completing the applicant sections according to the instructions accompanying the application.
  3. Asking their high school guidance counselor to complete the secondary-school portion of the application and to attach an official copy of their high school transcript to the application. That application package should then be forwarded, together with the $40 non-refundable application fee, to the State University of New York, Application Processing Center, State University Plaza, Albany, New York 12246.

Notes

  1. Holders of a high school equivalency diploma (GED) should submit a copy of their test scores and diploma with the application. High school transcripts may be sent directly to the College.
  2. Scores from the Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT) or the American College Test (ACT) should be submitted directly from the testing agency.
  3. Applicants may, in certain instances, be required to visit the campus for a personal interview. A personal interview may be the most critical factor in determining college choice and therefore should be part of every prospective student's selection process. Delhi faculty generally make themselves available to see students when requested as part of the admissions visit.

Admission to Baccalaureate Programs

For admission to a baccalaureate program, a candidate must submit a formal application and be a graduate of an accredited secondary school or have an equivalent education.

Transfer Applicants

Students who have attended other colleges, full or part time, are classified as transfer students and may be admitted with advanced standing. In addition to the application procedures listed above, transfer applicants must request official transcripts from all previously attended colleges. These must be submitted directly from those colleges to the Enrollment Services Office at Delhi. A maximum of half the credit hours will be accepted from other colleges for an associate's degree or certificate program. Students transferring into bachelor's degree options should consult with the academic division regarding transfer credit. Courses completed at another institution transfer only as credit: i.e., letter grades and quality points do not transfer. Transfer students must complete all specified degree requirements.

January Applicants

Each year the College admits a limited number of students for the spring semester. Several programs are not available for spring admission due to the sequencing of courses in those programs. Prospective applicants should refer carefully to the curricula offerings listed in the SUNY Application Guidebook or contact the Enrollment Services Office at Delhi. Also, see the Admissions Decisions section below for general admissions criteria.

International Student Applicants

  3. Official copies of all academic transcripts accompanied by a translation if the originals are not in English.
  4. Adequate financial resources that are documented by bank or other financial statements. Financial resources need to be in place prior to granting an I-20 certification.

Please note that each international student applicant must have the equivalent of a United States high school diploma. I-20 forms will be sent only after a student has been accepted by the College.

Admissions Decisions

Applications are considered on a rolling admissions basis with all eligible candidates admitted on a first-come, first-served basis. In considering applicants for admission, the Enrollment Services Office places particular emphasis on the following:

  1. Secondary-school records or equivalency scores.
  2. Satisfactory completion of prerequisite course requirements established for the respective curricula of the College.
  3. SAT or ACT scores. While not required, scores from either test, when available, will be used in conjunction with all other available academic credentials.
  4. Additional information to explain special or extenuating circumstances.

Admissions decisions are released beginning November 1 for the following fall semester and continue throughout the year.

Admissions Interviews

Prospective students and their families are strongly encouraged to visit the campus to discuss college plans with an admissions counselor. This interview provides an opportunity to discuss academic major and career choices, college life, and financial aid. Further, all visiting students and their families will be offered a tour of the campus. The Enrollment Services Office is open for appointments from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Monday through Friday.

Readmission

Former students who wish to apply for readmission after a lapse of one or more semesters must write to the Enrollment Services Office for a Petition to Readmit. Students wishing to pursue a second degree after graduating from a Delhi program should also follow this procedure.

Students who are academically dismissed from the College are required to successfully complete six credit hours of approved coursework at another institution with grades of C or better in each course before being readmitted to the College.

Transfer Credit

SUNY Delhi accepts transfer credits from accredited institutions, the College-Level Examination Program (CLEP), the College Entrance Examination Board's Advanced Placement Examination (AP), Regents College Examinations, and the Armed Forces. Applicants must submit official transcripts and/or other official documentation.

Credit evaluations are provided after a student has been accepted to the College. SUNY Delhi accepts a maximum of half the required transfer credit hours for associate's degree programs, 83 credit hours for bachelor's degrees, and up to half of the total credit hours required for graduation in certificate programs. Members of the Armed Forces may be eligible for additional transfer credit hours (PE and First Aid).

Non-Matriculated Students

Non-matriculated students are served by the Center for Continuing Education and Corporate Services, the programs and services of which are described elsewhere in this catalog. Non-matriculated students should at a minimum have completed their junior year of high school. Please contact the Dean of Enrollment Services and Lifelong Learning for more information.

Service Members Opportunity College

Delhi is a member of the Service Members Opportunity Colleges (SOC) and Service Members Opportunity Colleges Associate Degree (SOCAD) program. The College is part of a consortium of national higher education institutions which function in cooperation with the Department of Defense, the Military Services, and the Coast Guard to help meet the voluntary higher education needs of service members and their dependents.

Concurrent Admissions Program (CON AP)

The Concurrent Admissions Program (CON AP) is conducted by colleges and universities that are members of Service Members Opportunity Colleges (SOC). Concurrent with their enlistment in the Army, new soldiers are encouraged to apply for admission to SUNY Delhi. Upon meeting satisfactory criteria for full or provisional admission, soldiers will be allowed to defer admission until completion of military service.

After completing a two-, three- or four-year enlistment, the new veteran will be encouraged to enroll at Delhi. This program also applies to soldiers enlisting in the Army Reserve.

Those interested in the CON AP program are encouraged to contact the Office of Enrollment Services.

Armed Forces Credit

Some training courses provided by the Armed Forces may be the equivalent of college courses, and transfer credit may be obtained. Where courses, service school experience, or subject matter exams are applicable to a curriculum, credit will be determined using the American Council on Education publication Guide to Evaluation of Educational Experiences in the Armed Services.

Early Admission Program

Early admission may be granted to an applicant who has completed the junior year of high school and is recommended for college by the principal or a counselor. A contract detailing specific arrangements for completing the requirements for high school graduation must be made between the student, the high school principal, and the Dean of Enrollment Services. For further information, contact the Enrollment Services Office. Arrangements for this contract are the responsibility of the applicant.

Deposits

A $50 tuition deposit is requested of all accepted applicants. The deposit is applied toward the applicant's first-semester tuition and reserves a space in their chosen major. A $100 housing deposit is also required of all accepted applicants and is applied toward the applicant's first-semester housing cost.
