College Success

Onondaga Community College positions students for success by implementing research validated methods and other high impact practices for the early and ongoing student engagement in the educational process. This is accomplished by assessing students’ academic needs and non-cognitive traits to identify effectively areas where students will most likely succeed and where they require support; engaging students effectively in comprehensive first year programming including an effective orientation, a strong and holistic advising system and registration process, exposure to transfer opportunities, and career development counseling; supporting faculty to sustain excellent learning opportunities in both academic programs and individual courses to ensure curricular integrity, providing students with resources to excel in their subjects.
