New Pathway To A Bachelor's Degree Connects OCC and SUNY Polytechnic Institute

Posted on January 28, 2021

Onondaga Community College (OCC) President Dr. Casey Crabill and SUNY Polytechnic Institute (SUNY Poly) Acting President Dr. Tod A. Laursen today signed a transfer articulation agreement which provides students who earn their associate degree at OCC a seamless pathway into one of 12 degree programs at SUNY Poly. OCC students will be able to take all of their credits with them to SUNY Poly and then complete work toward their bachelor’s degree in as soon as two years. Across the country, college students face a significant barrier to graduation when they change programs. This partnership addresses that barrier and ensures that students are prepared to graduate with a bachelor’s degree in four years.

“We’re grateful to our partners at SUNY Poly for recognizing the outstanding potential in our students and creating a pathway for them to earn a valuable four-year degree at a SUNY price point. During an uncertain time for students and families, this agreement provides a tremendous level of certainty for anyone considering bettering their lives through higher education,” said OCC President Dr. Casey Crabill.

“SUNY Poly is proud to partner with OCC to simplify the transfer process, especially when so many students face headwinds related to economic uncertainty and the pandemic,” said SUNY Poly Acting President Dr. Tod A. Laursen. “It is imperative that students are able to pursue streamlined bachelor’s degree pathway options that are not only affordable, but also simple to navigate, providing the experiential learning-based skills that will prepare them to enjoy thriving careers.”
