Financial aid representatives will provide details about the grants and loans process, as well as the many academic scholarships available at Suffolk.

Veterans should note that campus representatives will be available to provide educational and transitional services information.

The Open House program at each campus will be important for recently-accepted students as well, and provide an opportunity to learn more about placement testing, academic advisement and financial aid.

Suffolk Students Can Opt For Simultaneous Long Island University Admission Under New, Innovative Agreement

Students entering Suffolk County Community College this fall will be able to enroll in an innovative joint admissions program and be simultaneously accepted into one of more than a dozen degree-granting programs offered by both Long Island University (LIU) and Suffolk County Community College.

Long Island University President Kimberly R. Cline and Suffolk County Community College President Shaun L. McKay announced the program today.

The Suffolk/LIU ExpressSuccess Program is the latest partnership agreement between LIU, one of the nation’s largest private universities and, Suffolk, the State University of New York’s (SUNY) largest community college, with three campus locations and two downtown satellite centers. Participants in the Suffolk/LIU ExpressSuccess Program will complete their associate degree at Suffolk and, following graduation, will transfer directly into LIU to pursue baccalaureate degree programs.

Upon graduation from Suffolk County Community College, students will transition to LIU where LIU Promise Success Coaches and a team of mentors will help them navigate the remaining years of their education, including:

  • A newly-expanded Honors College for LIU’s most academically-ambitious students
  • More than 500 academic programs to creatively pair majors, minors, clubs, and learning communities to carve out academic and career niches
  • Student-run businesses, offering venture-focused learning opportunities that promote innovative and entrepreneurial thinking, as well as provide executive-level experience that employers seek
  • Award-winning athletic teams
  • A distinguished network of over 200,000 alumni who are senior leaders at global organizations, captains of industry leading multi-billion dollar businesses, or entrepreneurs who have created some of the country’s most recognizable brands.

The program also provides generous transfer scholarships for qualifying students, as well as on-site academic counseling and access to the libraries and other campus resources at both institutions.

Students will be able to take advantage of joint admission acceptance into programs such as accounting, business, early childhood education, communications, criminal justice, nursing and more.

“We look forward to working together with LIU to expand the educational options available to our students,” said President McKay. “This latest arrangement reflects Suffolk’s ongoing commitment to partnership development as a means for improving higher education on Long Island. Our latest collaboration with LIU clearly serves to ensure a smooth transition for Suffolk’s graduates and assists in our collective effort to keep bright, educated individuals here on Long Island, contributing to the vibrancy of our local communities and regional economies.”

“This groundbreaking program supports a common mission between LIU and Suffolk to provide talented young people on Long Island with a transformational education experience that prepares them for life long careers,” said Kimberly R. Cline. “Students will complete a four-year education with the merits of two outstanding institutions, and without undo financial burden.”

ExpressSuccess marks the fourth major collaboration between LIU and Suffolk: LIU Riverhead is located at Suffolk’s Eastern Campus; LIU is set to lease a 24,000-square-foot modular building on Suffolk’s Michael J. Grant Campus in Brentwood beginning this fall; LIU is a partnering institution in Suffolk’s Stay on Long Island Scholarship Initiative.

“This cooperative agreement between Suffolk County Community College and Long Island University is an innovative program that offers our community college students a direct path to a baccalaureate degree. This is a great educational opportunity for our young people and continues to show that Suffolk County Community College is a leader in the field of education on Long Island and state-wide,” said Suffolk County Legislature Presiding Officer DuWayne Gregory.

“Each year our graduates transfer to some of the finest colleges and universities in the state and across the nation,” said Theresa Sanders, Vice Chair of the College’s Board of Trustees and Chair of its Student Success Committee. “This joint admissions program is the latest outstanding example of Suffolk’s effective use of partnerships to ensure ongoing academic success for our students—even after they graduate—providing them with continued access to transformative opportunities that will have a meaningful impact upon their lives and careers.”
