POTSDAM -- Onondaga Community College and SUNY Potsdam now have a transfer agreement that allows students who earn an associate’s degree at Onondaga to transfer to SUNY Potsdam with junior status, where they can complete their bachelor’s degree.

Onondaga President Dr. Casey Crabill and SUNY Potsdam Interim President Dr. Dennis L. Hefner formally signed the agreement at Onondaga Tuesday morning.

Effective immediately, students can register for the new program, which will require them to complete two years of prescribed coursework at Onondaga for an associate’s degree, and continue to earn a bachelor's degree at SUNY Potsdam in two more years.

The agreement covers seven degree programs at Onondaga, including computer science, childhood education, criminal justice and music. A total of 53 degree programs at SUNY Potsdam are part of the agreement, including the college's baccalaureate programs in biology, business, mathematics and physics.

Students enrolled in the “2+2” program can receive help from both Onondaga and SUNY Potsdam academic advisors throughout the program.

SUNY Potsdam has similar transfer agreements with North Country Community College, Clinton Community College and Clarkson University. It is also working on transfer agreements with Jefferson Community College and SUNY Canton.
