openhouse2017-4Prospective and recently accepted students and their families will be welcomed by faculty, administrators and current students to Suffolk County Community College’s open house scheduled across all three of the college’s campuses and the Culinary Arts and Hospitality Center on Sunday, April 2 from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m.

College faculty and administrators will welcome visitors and offer detailed information about Suffolk’s more than 70 degree and 30 certificate programs and will be joined by admissions staff to help students and parents navigate the admissions process and answer questions. 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 County Community College has always been an exciting place to be,” said College President Dr. Shaun L. McKay, “and I urge prospective students and parents to learn more about the college’s superior academic, certificate and training programs.”

“A personal visit to a campus is critical to the college decision-making process,” said Joanne E. Braxton, Suffolk’s Dean of Enrollment Management.  “We look forward to having students and their families join us to learn about our academic programs and student support services,” Braxton said, adding “they will also have the opportunity to tour the campus with student guides who will answer questions. Attending the open house and applying early is the best way to secure admission to Suffolk County Community College,” Braxton concluded.

Achieving the Dream – Shark Bytes Data Point #4

This past spring, Suffolk County Community College was chosen to participate as a member of Achieving the Dream’s 2016 cohort. We will begin the College’s Achieving the Dream conversation by examining data points that will support future discussions addressing challenging questions related to: 1) our institutional mission, 2) the concept of student success and equity for all members of our diverse student body, and 3) how best to ensure that all students successfully attain the completion goals they set for themselves when they first enrolled here at Suffolk.  Additional data points will be sent to your attention weekly from the College’s Office of Planning and Institutional Effectiveness.
