24 Credit Hour Program Inquiry

    Applicants for a degree or certificate who are over 18 years of age, but have not graduated from high school or who do not have a General Equivalency Diploma, may be admitted as matriculated students pursuing a degree under the College’s 24 Credit Hour Program. Admission to this program will be based on the results of a standardized examination and an assessment of the student’s “ability to benefit” by the Director of Admissions in consultation with the appropriate division dean. Upon completion of 24 credit hours applicable to the chosen curriculum, in accordance with the State Department of Education (https://www.acces.nysed.gov/aepp/course-distribution-requirements), the student must apply for the General Equivalency Diploma through the Registrar’s Office. This procedure must be completed if students are to be eligible to receive an associate’s degree from SUNY Schenectady County Community College.
