First in the World

First in the World

The State University of New York at Oswego is leading the project, Transfer Gateways and Completion, in partnership with Onondaga Community College (Syracuse, NY), Mohawk Valley Community College (Utica, NY), Cayuga Community College (Auburn, NY), and a best-practice college access and success program, On Point for College (Syracuse and Utica, NY).  Through Transfer Gateways and Completion, four strategic interventions have been designed to provide support for transfer students.  These interventions include Program Pathways, Advisement and Support, Preparatory and Transition Courses, and Institutional Agreements.  Our goal is to help transfer students save time and money as they work towards degree completion!     

If you are an OCC, CCC or MVCC transfer student, contact a Transfer Success Advisor! Advisors may help you save time and money! Advisors want to help you with ANY questions or needs you have! Walk-ins welcome!
