High School Programs

SUNY Oswego offers two very distinct programs that provide opportunities for high school students to earn college credit. 

SUNY Oswego in the High Schools provides an opportunity for academically eligible high school students to enroll in SUNY Oswego courses at their high school.  Courses and instructors are approved by SUNY Oswego faculty/departments and are offered at participating high schools throughout New York State.

The New Vision program is a competitive, rigorous, immersion-based program for college-bound seniors who have an interest in the law and government, health care or business fields.  CiTi (Oswego County BOCES) and SUNY Oswego developed a partnership to host the programs at Sheldon Hall on the SUNY Oswego campus.

How do I know if my high school offers a SUNY Oswego in the High Schools Course?  SUNY Oswego has established many partnerships with high schools across New York State.  You can ask your guidance counselor if your high school offers SUNY Oswego Courses.   It is important to note that not all high schools partner with us. 

If I have previously taken a SUNY Oswego in the High Schools class do I have to fill out the online form (step 1) again?  Yes, this is required even if you have taken SUNY Oswego courses in the past. Returning students must create a new login ID and pin as login information does not carry over from the previous year.

Can teachers or parents complete the online form (step 1)?  SUNY Oswego expects that the high school student is the person completing the online form.  The courses are college level and the expectation is that students are experiencing the responsibilities required of higher education.

If I earn college credit through the SUNY Oswego High School Program and would like to attend SUNY Oswego after I graduate do I still need to go through the application process?  Yes, earning credit through SUNY Oswego High School Programs does not mean you will automatically be admitted as a full-time, undergraduate student.  For more information about applying to SUNY Oswego please visit our admissions page.
