About SUNY ESC Undergraduate Degrees:
At SUNY ESC students self-design their Associate or Bachelor’s degree using an area of study guideline and the SUNY and ESC degree requirements. Students pursuing a degree at SUNY ESC through this partnership work with an assigned SUNY ESC faculty mentor to determine the most appropriate degree for their interests and goals to determine how best to apply their advanced standing credits and design their degree. (Advanced standing credits are the credits that can be transferred into SUNY ESC. Possible sources for advanced standing credits are the Individualized Prior Learning Assessment, credit from other accredited colleges/universities, credit from NCCRS evaluated programs such as the Hagen Core Program, etc.)
