Students who graduate from Onondaga Community College have the opportunity to continue their education, with scholarship support, through an innovative agreement between the college and the SUNY College of Environmental Science and Forestry (ESF).
Under the terms of a transfer partnership agreement, ESF will guarantee admission to qualified students and provide scholarships that cover the difference in tuition costs between the two institutions. Onondaga graduates receiving scholarships will be able to attend ESF while paying the same full-time tuition they paid at Onondaga.
ESF will also guarantee admission to students who graduate from Onondaga with a grade point average of at least 2.5, providing they complete certain transfer programs at Onondaga and enter a comparable bachelor’s degree program at ESF. The new agreement increases opportunities for Onondaga students who wish to continue their educations close to home and might otherwise not have been admitted to ESF. As admission to ESF has become more competitive in recent years, with a record freshman class enrolling this fall, standards for transfer students have risen, as well.
The agreement also paves the way for faculty at Onondaga and ESF to work together on the development of a new energy and the environment associate’s degree program at Onondaga to ensure that graduates of that program will be able to continue their educations as juniors in ESF’s renewable energy program.
