For qualified and motivated students, the Collegian Program allows students to earn a significant number of credits towards an Associate and/or Bachelor degree. In addition, the discounted tuition provides parents with sizable savings to offset their student's remaining college expenses.
Tuition is based on the number of credit hours designated to each course. Collegian students pay $65 per credit hour. This is a great savings off of the regular tuition of $170 per credit hour. Students eligible for free or reduced lunch can self identify during the online registration and pay $5 per credit hour. This will then be verified by the high schools at a later time.
Spring 2020 registration deadline is March 5th 2020
At the beginning of each semester, registration materials will be provided to high school instructors by a Collegian Program representative. Students interested in participating in the Collegian Program must register online and submit all materials to the College no later than the above deadline. Payment is due at the time of registration.
Collegian Credits may be accepted by other institutions several ways:
Note: A grade of 'C' or better is usually required for transfer.
In order to transfer your credits to another institution, you will need to complete a transcript request. There is a nominal fee for official transcripts. Telephone and email requests cannot be accepted.
Other Important Information
How much does it cost to take a SUNY Ulster Collegian course?
Tuition is based on the number of credit hours designated for each course. Collegian students currently pay a non-refundable $65 per credit hour. Most courses are three credits which brings the total cost to $195. A four credit course is $260. This is a great savings and offers an affordable jumpstart on your college education. Students eligible for free/reduced lunch pay tuition at the rate of $5 per credit hour. Verification of this eligibility will be done after registration. False reporting of this will result in a possible withdrawal from the course and a hold on all records.
What happens if I can’t pay by credit card?
Payment is expected upon registration with a credit card or money order. If special circumstances prevent either payment method, contact the guidance office or call SUNY Ulster at 687-5034 to make other payment arrangements.
I accidentally registered for the wrong class. How can I get this fixed?
After the registration deadline, SUNY Ulster can make some corrections to rosters for those students who paid for the wrong class. We allow a two week window for these corrections. However, if a student missed the registration deadline, NO new registrations will be accepted. This is standard collegiate registrar protocol, which is mandated for all SUNY Ulster students including Collegian students.
I registered for the class through SUNY Ulster, but I am dropping it off my high school schedule. What should I do?
Withdrawal Policy – VERY IMPORTANT
Upon registration, you become a SUNY Ulster student, and therefore must adhere to certain SUNY Ulster policies, procedures and deadlines. At that point, a SUNY Ulster transcript begins. Students cannot drop the course but can withdraw which will result in a “W” on their transcript.
SUNY Ulster Course withdrawals must be done by completing a SUNY Ulster withdrawal form located in the guidance office or by contacting the SUNY Ulster Collegian Coordinator or Associate Dean at 845-687-5034. Withdrawals past the withdrawal deadline will result in an “F” on the SUNY Ulster transcript.
Withdrawal Deadline for a ½ year “fall only” course: December 13, 2019
Withdrawal Deadline for a full year course: March 13, 2020
