Agreement Invites Cayuga Grads to Complete Bachelor's Degree

DATE: 05-11-2006

Thanks to a new transfer agreement, Cayuga Community College now offers students a direct pathway to a four-year degree from SUNY College of Agriculture and Technology at Cobleskill. Cayuga students who have completed their associate's degrees with a minimum 2.0 grade point average will be guaranteed a space at SUNY Cobleskill. Their Cayuga credits will meet the requirements for the first two years toward the bachelor's degree.

“Public higher education is about providing access to opportunity for all the citizens of this state,” said SUNY Cobleskill President Thomas Haas. The new agreement, he added, “will lead to a productive future” for students who take advantage of the Cayuga-Cobleskill connection.

“This agreement, the first of its kind within the State University of New York system, is an excellent example of a collaborative effort to benefit the students we all serve,” said Dennis Golladay, president of Cayuga Community College. “It creates a direct pathway for Cayuga graduates to complete the baccalaureate degree, and furthers SUNY's goal of ensuring accessible, affordable higher education to New York State students. And, in the spirit of collaborative ventures, it's a win-win situation for both colleges.”

The State University of New York College of Agriculture and Technology at Cobleskill is a fully accredited, comprehensive, residential college enrolling approximately 2,500 students annually. The college offers bachelor's and associate's degrees in Agriculture and Natural Resources; Business and Computer Technologies; Culinary Arts, Hospitality and Tourism; Early Childhood; and Liberal Arts and Sciences.
