SUNY Schenectady Admissions

Reimagine Your Future!

Welcome to SUNY Schenectady! 

We understand that when you're considering a college you’re looking for:

  • A convenient location
  • Affordable tuition 
  • Innovative academic programs
  • Strong student support services

If you’re fresh out of high school or returning to a classroom setting for the first time in several years we are committed to help you reach your career goals!

Enrolled students are eligible for:

  • CDTA Bus Pass*
  • YMCA Membership*
  • Free Campus Parking 

Admissions is available Monday-Friday
8:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m.

Call 518-381-1366 or e-mail admissions@sunysccc.edu.

The Admissions Office is open with limited on-campus staffing. We offer both in-person and virtual visits. Due to limited on-campus staffing, prospective students who would like to meet with an Admissions Advisor should make an appointment to guarantee someone is available to meet with them. Prospective students who wish to drop off transcripts and complete admissions applications are welcome to walk-in during normal business hours.

* Student must pay Student Activity fee
