Continuing Education Credit Courses

SUNY Delhi welcomes individuals interested in non-matriculated or non-degree studies. "Non-matriculated" simply means that a student has not been formally admitted to a degree or certificate program, but is enrolled in credit-bearing courses. Students take courses in non-matriculated status for a variety of reasons, which may include:

  • To become familiar with the college environment and college-level work
  • To improve academic standing before applying for matriculated admission to a degree program
  • To complete program prerequisites or General Education requirements before starting a degree program
  • To meet job advancement needs or build skills for employment
  • For personal interest and enrichment

Non-matriculated students are classified as part time, taking fewer than 12 credit hours per semester and are not eligible for financial aid. Learn more about the policies and requirements for non-matriculated students.

Please contact the Registrar's Office with questions.

Early College Program in Environmental Studies or Sustainability

Juniors and seniors in high school are invited to take advantage of our new Early College Gen-Ed Advisement Program that allows you the chance to complete courses that count toward any SUNY college’s general education requirement before you even get your high school diploma!  

Special Focus on Environmental Studies & Sustainability 
Students interested in any field can take advantage of this program, but this is a particularly exciting opportunity for your students who are interested in science, sustainable practices, and environmental protection. Students who participate in this program are guaranteed acceptance to Delhi's associate degree in Environmental Studies or our bachelor's degree in Sustainability which can lead to work that can benefit our economy, society, and environment. This is a seamless pathway that can lead to early college graduation!

How does it work?   

  • This program is open to high school juniors and seniors who have maintained a minimum GPA of 80 or higher.
  • Students can enroll in one or more classes each semester. Most classes are offered asynchronously with no set meeting time.
  • If students pass the classes offered in this program, they will earn up to 21 credits from SUNY Delhi. The selected courses fulfill requirements for the SUNY gen-ed curriculum. Any of the courses can transfer to other colleges to fulfill requirements for gen-eds and/or count toward an associate or bachelor's degree. Typically, colleges require a grade of C or better (policy set at the discretion of the receiving institution). See FAQ below for more details on transferring credit.
  • Classes are all taught via online instruction by SUNY Delhi professors.  We have been a leader in online education for the past decade and provide online students with access to our online learning platform Vancko Hall (Moodle), academic support, and full library services.

Program Details 

Courses offered in the fall semester (August -December): 

Courses offered in the spring semester (January - May):  

Once you begin taking classes as part of the Early College Program for either the Environmental Studies AS or the Sustainability BS, you are welcome to join us in the summer for a picnic and field trip at SUNY Delhi’s Outdoor Education Center!  The advisor for these academic programs, Dr. Jack Tessier, will lead the day’s festivities.  It is a great opportunity to visit Delhi, meet fellow students, talk to faculty in the programs, and tour the campus.  Check your SUNY Delhi email for the day and time each summer.

How to Get Started

Seats in these classes are guaranteed for students who sign up in advance (by February 15 for the fall semester and by October 15 for the spring semester).  This may seem early, but we cannot guarantee availability of spots in the class after these dates due to registration by other SUNY Delhi students.   

You can inquire about signing up for classes after these dates and we can check the course availability on a case-by-case basis. 


  • Classes are offered online, so no need for students to travel to campus, and coursework can be completed on their own schedules.
  • The SUNY gen-ed requirements are the same at every SUNY college for almost all associate and bachelor's degrees. Why not let a student's first experience in a college course class be with SUNY Delhi faculty who have small classes and a strong reputation for student support? 
  • Credits can also transfer to private colleges. See FAQ below for more details about transfer credit.
  • Early exposure to a college class and interaction with college professors.
  • A great opportunity for students to start their college classes early and gear up to graduate from college earlier than planned.
  • In-person summer field day at the SUNY Delhi Outdoor Education Center and special tour of our main campus.
  • Guaranteed admission to SUNY Delhi's Environmental Studies and/or Sustainability degrees. Receive special advisement for completion of these degrees from science professor Dr. Jack Tessier.


Each course is three credit hours and would cost $885.00* per class.  Students would also pay the comprehensive student fee of $55.10* per class to allow access to support services like our online learning platform Vancko Hall (Moodle), our online library resources, technology support, and more.  (*These are current 2020-2021 academic year rates. Amounts are subject to change each year.)

Contact the the SUNY Delhi Office of Continuing Education and Professional Studies at or 607-746-4545 with any questions.  


  • Do I apply through the Admissions Office? 
    • Early College Students must register through the Office of Continuing Education & Professional Studies by filling out the Early College Form. Please do not fill out an application or register for classes online through the Registrar's Office or Admissions Office.
  • Are there scholarships, grants, or loans available?
    • Early College students are not eligible for financial aid through SUNY Delhi.
  • When do we pay our bill?
    • Payment is due at the time of registration.
  • Do these classes meet at a specific time?
    • Most courses will be delivered asynchronously, meaning the class does not meet at a specific time or date, and coursework is assigned via our online learning management software (Vancko Hall).
  • Are these credits guaranteed to transfer to any other college? 
    • The decision to accept transfer credits from SUNY Delhi is at the discretion of the receiving institution. Generally a grade of C or better needs to be earned for another institution to accept the credit, but this can vary based on individual college policies.  
      While the SUNY Gen-Ed requirements are the same across every campus, each subject area has several classes that can meet the requirement. Some specific degree programs at certain institutions may prefer their students to take a certain class that can satisfy both a gen-ed and major-related requirement. If that is the case, any of the classes in this Early College Program could count toward elective credits instead of fulfilling a gen-ed requirement. If you are interested in a specific degree program at another institution, it is recommended that you reach out to that institution for advisement prior to registration.
