New Student Orientation is designed to help students as they transition to the social, cultural and academic aspects of the college. We partner with family members during this exciting time in their student's life to assist them in understanding the experience their students are embarking upon. Entering a new community of scholars can be stressful and we're excited to connect students with resources that will aid in their success at SUNY SCCC. To help you reach your goals and achieve success in the SUNY SCCC community, your Academic Dean, advisor, success coach, student college ambassador, and many other College representatives are excited to welcome and guide you during your Orientation program.
