Frequently Asked Questions
How does my student receive regular mail at SUNY Delhi?
All students have a mailbox on campus. New students are assigned their mailbox number and combination at the Student Mailroom during orientation. It is also the student's responsibility to communicate their correct SUNY Delhi address to you. Mail that is larger than student mailboxes are kept by the mailroom attendant, who places a notice card in the student's mailbox. The student mailroom is open Monday to Friday from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. while college is in session. Students are encouraged to check their mailbox frequently as college business is sent to all students' campus addresses.
NEW Student addresses:
649 Bronco Drive, #XXXX
Delhi, NY 13753-4450
** Please do not add "PO Box" or "PO" or "Box" in front of the four-digit number.
** Address should read as stated above - pound sign and student's four-digit number.
What type of phone service is available in Delhi?
Cellular One and Verizon are currently the companies which provide the most dependable cell phone service in the Delhi area. Please keep in mind that Delhi is in a rural area and cell service can be limited and sporadic.
Students living on campus are assigned a phone number for their room. All rooms are
equipped with phone jacks and voice mail capabilities. Students bring their own landline
Please note: Cordless phones that are 2.4Ghz (only) are not permitted as these interfere with Internet connections.
Students are strongly encouraged to bring a landline phone for their room and to set up their voice mail. Once set up, a student can check their voice mail from anywhere, on or off campus. Voice mail will be used by the college to send students important and urgent messages. Encourage your student to have a room phone and check their voice mail.
What if I'm having difficulty getting in touch with my student?
If the student lives on campus and you've tried other means of getting in touch, please contact the Residence Director (RD) of the hall where the student is residing.
RDs will give the message personally or leave a note on the student's door asking them to phone home. They can often alleviate your worry by verifying the student's presence on campus. All RDs have voice mail so if you cannot reach them directly you can leave a message. In the event of an emergency concerning any student, contact University Police at 607-746-4700.

Does my SUNY Delhi student need special insurance coverage?
The Student Health Insurance Waiver must be completed annually. College policy requires that all full-time students purchase a student accident and health insurance plan, unless they can prove they have equivalent coverage. All students are automatically billed for the college's student health insurance plan at the beginning of the fall semester. Information about the student accident and health insurance is available from Health and Counseling Services, 607-746-4690.
NOTE: The college is not liable for expenses incurred as a result of accidents of injuries related to college programs or on college property.
What should my student do if they are ill?
Your student should go to the Health and Counseling Services Center in Foreman Hall Monday to Friday during regular hours. The clinic is open until 6 p.m. four nights a week. Your student will be screened by an RN and given an appointment with a nurse practitioner or physician if necessary. If students are sick on a weekend and it is an emergency, they should go to O'Connor Hospital. If your student is unable to get there on their own, we encourage them to take the Bronco Bus or Riverview Shuttle. If necessary, a private ambulance can be requested by University Police.
Students in need of medication should go to Health and Counseling Services. Those residing on campus can also receive a note for the dining hall. This allows the designee of the ill student to use his/her ID for take-out meals, in those instances when the student is too ill to be out and about as usual.
What happens if a student has an extenuating personal circumstance come up during school?
Students should contact Health and Counseling Services. In the event that extended time is needed away from college, a Personal Leave of Absence may be granted in such circumstances as illness or other unusual personal hardship. Students must petition for such a leave through the Director of Health and Counseling Services.
What type of academic assistance is available to my student?
Each student is assigned an academic advisor within their program of study. The advisor's name is provided at orientation and initial meetings with advisors are held during orientation. Students are required to see their advisors several times throughout each semester and to maintain communication with them during their attendance at the college.
Tutoring and other special services are available at the Resnick Academic Achievement Center, located in the Resnick Library. All students are encouraged to familiarize themselves with these services, which support academic success and career planning.
Why has a "hold" been placed on my student's account?
There are a variety of reasons a "hold" may be placed on a student's account; generally because the college is missing important information from the student or a balance is owed on their account. Different departments handle the resolution of the "hold" based upon the nature of it (i.e. immunization - Health Services; off-campus address - Registrar's Office; parking violation - University Police). Log into Bronco Web with your student's 800 number and PIN. Go to Students, then to Student Records, then to View Holds. You can also contact the office of Student Financial Services with further questions.
How do we secure housing for our student?
To get a room assignment on campus, a new student, upon acceptance, must pay a mandatory deposit of $100 (this is separate from the $50 tuition deposit) and complete the online housing contract. On-campus housing cannot be guaranteed after June 1. To live in the residence halls, students must be full-time matriculated students with at least 12 credit hours per semester. The college reserves the right to remove students from residence who are not actively attending classes or have had sanctions imposed by Judicial Affairs. Detailed information on the room assignment process can be found at the Student Housing page.
What will my student need in their residence hall room?

How safe are a student's belongings?
While the campus is very safe, the college does not accept responsibility for personal belongings. Generally, a family homeowner's insurance or renter's policy may provide coverage for student belongings. The college strongly recommends that each student purchase property insurance to protect their electronics and belongings from damage, theft and fire. For more information visit the National Student Services, Inc. web page or call 800-256-6774.

What if on-campus housing is filled?

What if your student lives off campus, but not at home?
