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 experiential learning. 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's degrees, specialized baccalaureate degrees, and the Master of Science in Nursing Education. U.S. News and World Report ranks SUNY Delhi among the leading colleges in the North. 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. Delhi has also gained distinction as a "Military Friendly School" for four consecutive years.
Experience is the cornerstone of Delhi's academic programs. Bachelor's degree programs include extensive internships, many of which lead directly to employment upon graduation. Technical programs feature many opportunities for students to gain on-the-job experiences.
Over 3,500 students are enrolled at SUNY Delhi, and they represent nearly every county in New York State neighboring states, and foreign countries such as Japan, Saudi Arabia and the People's Republic of China. Students from under-represented groups make up approximately 30 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 ranks Delhi a leader in online baccalaureate education in the United States for the third year in a row. More than 700 students are enrolled in Delhi's RN-to-BSN online program, the first of its type in New York State. An online baccalaureate degree in Criminal Justice and the Master of Science in Nursing Education were launched in 2014. 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.
