Is there an application fee?There is no application fee – simply complete the Onondaga online application.
When will we hear if our child has been admitted?Applications are reviewed as they are received. Students are contacted as soon as possible, usually within two weeks of submitting a completed application.
What information am I entitled to know about my student?FERPA, The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act, is a federal mandate that requires Onondaga to protect the privacy of students. Under FERPA, the College cannot disclose information, including academic, without written permission from the student (even if you are paying the tuition!). My child has a learning disability. What assistance is available?Onondaga is committed to assisting students with disabilities reach their full potential. The Disability Services Office determines appropriate services and resources for each student based on his or her specific needs.
What learning support services are available?There is a full array of academic support services, including the Content Tutoring Center, the Math Lab, the Study Skills Center, and the Writing Skills Center.
How safe is the campus?Even though we are already one of the safest campuses in the SUNY system, the College evaluates security on a continuous basis. We have campus safety peace officers on duty 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, a mass emergency notification plan, and 38 Emergency Call Boxes spread over the campus.
Is Financial Aid available?More than 80% of our students receive some form of aid. General eligibility for most federal, state, and institutional aid programs is based on financial need and/or academic achievement. Aid is available in several forms: grants, scholarships, loans and student employment programs. You can get an estimate of your eligibility for federal student aid by going to www.fafsa4caster.ed.gov.
Is housing available on the Onondaga campus?Onondaga offers state-of-the-art residence halls at an affordable price.
