SUNY Welcome Center


We appreciate the vital role you play in helping students consider their higher education options and guiding them through the admissions process. As the “front door” for prospective New York City area students, family members, and school and community-based organization counselors, the SUNY Welcome Center is virtually here for you. We have an array of resources to help answer student questions.
