Honors Programs

SUNY Delhi offers honors programs meant to provide high-achieving students opportunities to challenge themselves intellectually, to create mentoring relationships with faculty members, and gain recognition from the college as well as potential employers and transfer institutions.  SUNY Delhi currently has three honors programs: the Associate Degree Honors Program open to all students in an associate degree program with a cumulative GPA of 3.3 or higher, the Bachelor Degree Honors Program open to all students in a bachelor degree program with a cumulative GPA of 3.3 or higher, and the Presidential Scholar Program open to high school graduates in Delaware and Otsego counties.

Honors courses have limited enrollment to guarantee quality interactions between students and professors, and provide in-depth considerations of a wide range of challenging topics.

The Honors Program designation on a student's transcript reinforces to potential employers or transfer institutions that the student has not only maintained a high GPA, but has done so while taking particularly rigorous courses.  Dedicated funds are available for competitive Honors Program scholarships.  Students can apply for scholarships after they have completed a minimum of one semester enrolled in SUNY Delhi's Honors Program.

Applications, forms, and further information for these programs may be found at www.delhi.edu.

Presidential Scholars Program

Each academic year, the prestigious Presidential Scholars Program selects up to twelve Presidential Scholars among students new to SUNY Delhi.  All incoming graduated high school, transfer, and non-traditional students are eligible.  Every year, six scholarships are awarded to the most deserving new students at SUNY Delhi, and six additional scholarships are chosen from the remaining top local applicants from Delaware and Otsego counties.  When awarding scholarships, special consideration is given to specific majors that are annually designated by the Provost.  To identify the most deserving students, the applicants will be ranked by criteria that include SAT scores, ACT scores, class rank, high school average, and/or weighted high school average.

These top-achieving students are provided with a full-tuition scholarship for four or eight consecutive semesters, depending upon their program and upon their maintenance of at least a 3.3 cumulative GPA.  Presidential Scholars are required to take an honors course during each of their semesters.

To be considered for a Presidential Scholarship, the deadline for application to SUNY Delhi is November 1st; scholarships will be awarded by November 15th.  On December 15th, scholarships that are not accepted will be awarded to the next highest ranking student(s).


Partnership for Nursing Opportunities

SUNY Delhi and Bassett Healthcare in Cooperstown have joined forces to provide attractive and affordable paths to both associate and baccalaureate degrees in Nursing, as well as employment with a major regional healthcare provider. The program is sequential and begins with entrance in year two as an LPN in the A.A.S degree program in Nursing at Delhi.  The student can then work part time for Bassett Hospital and continue on through a specially designed educational program leading first to an associate degree in Nursing from Delhi and then to a bachelor degree in Nursing. Special financial aid is available to program participants. For additional information, contact Delhi's Admissions Office at 1-800-96-DELHI.

Online RN-to-BSN Program

The RN-to-BSN program at SUNY Delhi provides educational mobility for registered nurses who are seeking a Bachelor of Science in Nursing. The RN-to-BSN curriculum is designed with the working registered nurse in mind, and offers versatility and flexibility as the program is totally online. Precepted clinical experiences for select courses are completed in the student's hometown area. The objectives of the program emphasize critical thinking and practice skills necessary for clinical management of patients within a constantly changing healthcare environment. A total of 120 credits is required to earn a BSN at SUNY Delhi; however, the length of the program varies depending on equivalent prerequisite courses completed. Opportunities for full- and part-time study are available to allow students to proceed at their own pace. To view more information about this program, see the Online RN-to-BSN Program section of this catalog.
