Orientation Programs

Due to various programs and construction projects on campus this summer unfortunately we will not be able to offer housing for parents or guests on campus.  Only the student will be allowed to stay.

The college recognizes the social and academic adjustments which must occur for entering college students to be successful. To enable new students to move with ease and confidence from home/high school environment to the college environment, SUNY Canton provides an orientation program as a total campus endeavor.

Orientation Group Activity

Orientation is mandatory for all new and transfer students. The only exceptions to this are the students who do not attend ANY courses on the Canton campus (for example, those attending entirely online or Dental Hygiene students attending the Rome campus), do not need to attend the on-campus orientation. They will be contacted by the Online Learning Center for their Orientation once it is much closer to the start of classes.

During orientation, students get a taste of campus life, a sense of academic expectations, meet and greet their Deans and academic advisors, and receive a tentative class schedule for the entering semester.

Students who need to take an ACCUPLACER placement test may Advising & First Year Experience for further details at (315)-379-3954 or testing@canton.edu.
