“SUNY Delhi is pleased to offer Westchester Community College students an excellent, affordable transfer option to continue their education in one of our outstanding bachelor programs,” said Misty Fields, Associate Director of Admissions at SUNY Delhi. “The agreement is unique due to the multitude of programs it covers, especially in the areas of applied sciences and applied technologies. We are confident that Westchester Community College students will thrive in the student-centered learning environment at SUNY Delhi.”
“Our main goal is to help students succeed. Expanding our transfer pathways with new agreements with four-year institutions helps our students move on toward promising opportunities in the classroom and the workplace,” said Westchester Community College Vice President of Academic Affairs Vanessa Morest. “This is another step toward our mission to simplify and redesign the student experience. The agreement will make it easier for our students to achieve their dreams.”
To encourage students to take advantage of the new partnership, SUNY Delhi will award two one-time $1,000 SUNY Delhi/Westchester Community College Pathways Transfer Scholarships to a student who resides on campus and a student enrolled in an online program. The scholarships require each student to maintain full-time student status with a cumulative GPA of 3.0.
