The Cayuga Community College Office of Admissions will host an Open House at their Auburn campus on Saturday, March 8, 10 a.m.– Noon, at 197 Franklin St. in Auburn.
This event is open to prospective students, parents and community members and will showcase information about the College’s degree programs, services, tuition and financial aid, student clubs, activities and events. A general welcome and overview of the college will be given followed by several breakout sessions.
“The open house is a great way to convey—more personally than a website or brochure might—why 8 out of 10 graduates said Cayuga was their first choice,” says Jeffrey Rosenthal, Cayuga’s vice president of student affairs. “Ninety-nine percent said they’d recommend Cayuga to a friend or relative. That is a resounding testament to the quality of our academic programs and to the commitment and dedication of our faculty, administrators and staff.”
Among the benefits to be highlighted during the open house are Cayuga’s academic programs and degree options, geared to meet the educational and career goals of every student. Cayuga offers an associate in applied science degree (AAS) if immediate entry into a career is the student’s goal. If transfer to a four-year college is desired, Cayuga offers associate degrees in arts (AA) and sciences (AS) in many fields of study.
One of the most pressing issues for prospective college students and their parents is cost. Part of the open house will be spent addressing financing options. Cayuga is one of the most affordable community colleges in the state of New York, allowing students to reach their educational goals with less long-term debt. College officials work with students and families to secure the financial assistance needed to cover costs via grants, scholarships, student and parent loans and work opportunities for students.
Cayuga’s open house is well timed for students to learn about the College and apply in time to begin their studies as early as this summer. Cayuga’s open, rolling admissions process enables students to apply anytime. Completed applications, including final high school transcript or official GED are normally processed within one week of submission. Fall semester courses generally begin late August/early September, and late January marks the start of the spring semester. Summer (May-August) and intersession (January) terms provide additional opportunities to enroll.
