College Overview

Founded in 1913 and granted charter membership in the State University of New York in 1948, SUNY Delhi has earned a solid reputation for providing a student-centered, residential collegiate experience focused on academic excellence, innovation, and hands-on experience. Delhi has also carved a unique niche in higher education. Delhi offers a seamless technology-based education that includes over 50 academic programs leading to certificates, associate degrees, and specialized baccalaureate degrees. The U.S. News and World Report College Guide ranked SUNY Delhi among the leading colleges in the North for five consecutive years. That same publication reported that Delhi ranks among the top five in the nation with four-year degree majors enrolling in graduate school within a year after graduating.

Practical experience is the cornerstone of Delhi's academic programs. Bachelor degree programs include extensive internships, and technical programs feature extensive on-the-job experiences. More than 95 percent of Delhi students find jobs or continue their education within a year of graduating.

Over 3,300 students attend Delhi, and they represent a true cross section of the state's population. Nearly 25 percent of the student body comes from the Mid-Hudson region; about 22 percent comes from New York City and Long Island, with the remainder representing nearly every county in New York, neighboring states, and foreign countries such as Columbia, Japan and Vietnam. Students from under-represented groups make up 25 percent of Delhi's student body.

One of the fastest-growing segments of SUNY Delhi's student population is off site and online, and U.S. News and World Report ranks Delhi among the Top 50 online baccalaureate degree granting colleges in the United States. More than 400 students are enrolled in Delhi's RN-to-BSN online program, which was the first of its type in New York State. SUNY Delhi also offers courses leading to select baccalaureate degrees on the campuses of Schenectady County Community College, Tompkins Cortland Community College, Onondaga Community College, and Suffolk County Community College.

SUNY Delhi has earned national recognition for its commitment to volunteer service. The O'Connor Center for Community Engagement has been named to the President's National Honor Role for Community Service for seven consecutive years. The college is also making impressive strides in integrating service into the curriculum

As a residential college, Delhi is committed to providing programs and services designed to enhance the personal and cultural development of students. Approximately 70 percent of the student body lives on-campus. A College-managed apartment complex is located adjacent to campus. Living-learning environments, available to Veterinary Science Technology majors, offer special services such as peer and faculty mentors, classes conducted in the residence halls, and the opportunity to form special relationships with classmates.

Delhi offers a full range of individual counseling, career planning and placement assistance, as well as services for veterans and students with documented disabilities. Special attention is given to outreach programs that offer workshops on contemporary health and lifestyle issues, résumé production, job interview techniques, and strategies for succeeding at college work.

Academic support for students is also available through the Resnick Learning Center. Students can receive instruction in writing, mathematics, study skills, and other areas through peer and professional tutoring.
