SUNY Sullivan begins new academic year with a population boom


MONTICELLO – More students are finding a lot to like about Sullivan County’s community college.

SUNY Sullivan President Jay Quaintance told county legislators on Thursday that enrolment for the new year exceeded predictions.

“Our enrollment at this point is up three and a half percent from our goal. It’s up 3.7 percent from last year.  It’s up seven percent for in-county students.  So we’re really, we’re really obviously being more attractive to our local population.”

Quaintance said they are also preparing for the future with a building plan that addresses some long-standing maintenance issues.

“It points the direction for improvements to our instructional phase to remain competitive and keep this trajectory of growth on track.”

One new course offering this year is a certified alcohol and substance abuse certificate program.
