SUNY's 30 locally sponsored community colleges are located strategically throughout New York State. They offer two-year degree programs that serve as job-entry educational experience or transfer opportunities to bachelor's degree programs at four-year campuses. (One advantage of the SUNY system is that credits are easily transferable between campuses if you want to continue your education beyond the community college level.) Community colleges also offer shorter certificate programs. Community colleges have been in the forefront of efforts to meet the accelerating pace of technological developments and the requirements of continuing educational opportunity for all. Every New York State high school graduate is guaranteed admission to his or her local community college. Full-time enrollment at community colleges range from 700 to over 10,000.
