At an institution of higher education, students are exposed to a learning environment that promotes an open exchange of ideas. Course content is presented on an adult level, and class discussions require a mature understanding of divergent viewpoints and the ability to think critically on controversial issues.

Credits earned during the early admission period may be used to satisfy graduation requirements from high school, with the high school determining how these credits will be utilized. Grades earned will become part of the student's permanent college transcripts.

SUNY Sullivan is pleased to participate in the federal government’s Dual Enrollment Experience as part of their Experimental Sites Initiative, which aims to learn about how Pell Grant funding can expand opportunities for students from low-income backgrounds to participate in dual enrollment and expand access to rigorous coursework. SUNY Sullivan is participating in this program with select local school districts.

To be eligible to participate, students must:

  • Enroll as “full-time” students, taking at least twelve (12) credits throughout their time in the program (at least six [6] per semester). All credits must be toward the degree; remedial courses are not degree courses.
  • Pass SUNY Sullivan’s placement tests
  • Participate in one of five targeted degree programs that are STEM-related and/or tied to “emerging career paths” in the community.
  • Be high school diploma candidates in one of the participating local school districts.
  • Obtain the permission of their high school to participate, to ensure that the courses taken do not impede the student’s academic progress and persistence in high school.

To participate in the program, students must:

  • Apply using the free application and be accepted to SUNY Sullivan.
  • Be Pell Eligible, determined by submission of appropriate financial aid documents.
  • Pass the college’s placement exams in English and Math.
  • Fulfill other college entrance requirements (including but not limited to the submission of required paperwork).
  • Obtain the permission of a guidance counselor for their participation.

Interested students should contact their high school guidance counselor for more information.

Any student who officially withdraws from a course or from the college prior to the first class will receive a one-hundred percent refund of tuition and fees. A student who officially withdraws after the first class meets shall be liable for payment of tuition and refundable fees in accordance with the following schedule:
