About the College Catalog
It is with great pleasure that we introduce the new, Digital Catalog as a replacement for what has historically appeared in print. Providing catalog information digitally allows for greater flexibility and makes the publication far more accessible to students. This resource, which had been published once every two years, will now be updated each and every spring and fall semester.
The College Catalog vs. The College Web Site — Where to Go for What?
Both the College Catalog and the college website contain information on a variety of subjects. In general, the best place to start your search for information will be the college’s website at www.sunywcc.edu. Using the horizontal navigation system there, students can find everything they need. Where appropriate, certain requests will automatically link visitors into, and out of, the Digital College Catalog. Use the links and Search feature found at the left of the page to navigate through the Catalog. The horizontal navigation bar at the top of the page can be used to return to the college website.
Information that is stored within the College Catalog is archived each semester. Use the drop-down menu at the top of the page to select the edition you want to review. This feature is particularly useful for reviewing progress you have made toward your degree. Be sure to read the section below entitled Archived Catalog Editions.
Because the College Catalog is archived every semester, this is where we have chosen to store information about our Programs of Study; Course Descriptions; and College Standards, Procedures, and Policies. The remainder of the catalog serves as a good resource for new and future students who are looking for overview of what the college has to offer. It contains general information about the college and often directs visitors to the website for additional details.
Archived Catalog Editions
When you need to access the list of graduation requirements for your particular degree, the College Catalog is the place to go. Because students’ program requirements are locked-in based on the year and semester that they enroll in a program, it is important that students return to the correct Catalog edition when reviewing their progress. New editions of the Catalog will be published after the start of each fall and spring semester, and the existing edition will be added to the archives. Program requirements do change, so be sure you select the edition appropriate for you when you look back.
A Note about Accessibility
The Digital College Catalog is a replacement of the printed Course Catalog. Students are encouraged to access Catalog information online as needed, printing only when truly necessary. Academic counselors will print relevant excerpts for students during counseling visits. Students unable to access Catalog information online may contact the Registrar’s Office at 914-606-6810 or the Counseling Office at 914-606-6572 for further assistance.
