SUNY Ulster Advantage

If you just missed placement into college-level coursework based on your Entering Student Assessment, SUNY Ulster Advantage can help you make your transition to college more successful.

SUNY Ulster Advantage is a five-week program that meets four half-days per week. The program is offered in the morning at the Stone Ridge Campus (Monday- Thursday, 8:45 – 11:50 a.m.). With classes kept small so you receive individual attention, the program will provide computer-assisted math instruction, tutoring, writing instruction, and skill development workshops. You will begin at your level and progress at your own pace.

Watch your skills improve in just five weeks. Then, take your Assessment test again for another chance to place into college-level courses for the fall semester.

Summer 2017 Dates:

July 6 - August 9                         
Cost: $95.00
