SUNY Delhi Enrolls Highest Number of Students in Six Years
SUNY Delhi welcomed new students for the 2023-24 academic year on Thursday, August
24. This year’s incoming class consists of over 1,300 new students, which is the largest
cohort of newly enrolled students in 11 years, except for the peak year of 2017.
“SUNY Delhi’s enrollment growth reflects the strength of our position in the current higher education landscape,” said Dr. Mary Bonderoff, Acting President at SUNY Delhi. “At a time when college enrollments are declining around the nation, our reputation for hands-on, career-focused learning resonates with those looking for relevant skills and education that are in demand in today’s workforce.”
In the last year, SUNY Delhi made strategic improvements in marketing and admissions operations. Additionally, the college significantly increased capacity for highly sought-after programs in applied technologies.
Delhi’s new students were selected from a pool of nearly 7,000 applicants, a vast increase from the previous year. Approximately 1,060 are residential and commuting students, while 240 will be studying online. Geographically, the incoming class represents 58 New York counties and roughly 20 U.S. states. The most popular majors at SUNY Delhi this year are applied technologies, veterinary science technology, biology, business, and criminal justice.
New academic offerings this year include a 5-year bachelor’s degree in Architecture (BArch) as well as online programs in Veterinary Science Technology (AAS) and Criminal Justice (MS).
Welcome weekend for new students includes academic sessions and social events to prepare them for a successful start to their college journey. Returning students will move in this weekend, bringing the total number of students at SUNY Delhi to almost 2,900. Classes for all students are scheduled to begin Monday, August 28.
