Suffolk Community College Students Need Predictable Tuition

June 4, 2015 by THE EDITORIAL BOARD

Suffolk County Community College has a good story to tell. But it’s being lost right now in the annual wrangling with the county over the college’s budget. It shouldn’t be this way.

The fight is the usual one: The college requests more than the county says it can give. Each has concerns that must be addressed. But they need to put aside their mutual suspicions and cooperate on long-term planning that establishes what the college needs, what the county can offer, and what students and parents have to pay. The college can tighten its belt further, and should. The county — and state — can kick in more, and should. What’s happening now is not productive.

SCCC, which is autonomous, wants a 5 percent county bump in 2015-16; the county is offering 2.51 percent, a $1 million rise. The county says it still struggles with a deficit and that its offer is fair in this tax-cap world. The college says that without the extra money, it must use more of the reserves it’s been painstakingly rebuilding from dangerously low levels, or it must increase tuition by more than its planned boost of $180, a 4.1 percent hike that would bring annual full-time tuition to $4,570.

The college still suffers from years of recession-era neglect. Five of the last seven years saw no increases in the county’s contribution. The state gives less per pupil than in 2008-09 despite four straight annual increases. The result: Tuition, which state law says should provide just one-third of community college funding, now covers more than 50 percent of SCCC’s expenses. The county, and especially the state, pay less than their shares. That can’t change overnight, but it must change.

Suffolk, Nassau and community colleges statewide need a rational tuition plan like the one helping New York’s four-year public colleges. Set modest tuition increases for a period of years, do the same for state and county aid, and help parents and students plan for the future.

Suffolk, the state’s largest community college, educates some of our most-at-risk students. One-quarter are the first in their families to go to college. Sixty percent need remedial courses. Two-thirds get financial aid. Most work, many at more than one job. Many are retraining in response to layoffs or shifting job markets.

And all of them are buying into the notion that education is the key to a better life. Everyone else needs to honor that commitment.

The program has awarded more than $3.7 million in scholarships to 116 Suffolk County Community College students since its inception, McKay said.

“The SOLII Scholarships help our graduates achieve their academic dreams by continuing their education at quality four-year colleges and universities right here in our region,” President McKay said.

The initiative, McKay explained, provides full and partial-tuition scholarships to current Suffolk County Community College students who graduate and transfer to partnering four-year Long Island colleges that include: Adelphi University, Briarcliffe College, Dowling College, Farmingdale State College, Five Towns College, Hofstra University, LIU Post, LIU Riverhead, LIU Brentwood, Molloy College,New York Institute of Technology, The College at Old Westbury, St. John’s University, St. Joseph’s College and Stony Brook University.

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.”
