SUNY Canton Ranked a Top Online School for Students with Disabilities

Tuesday, May 2nd, 2017

Top Disability Friendly Online CollegesSR Education Group, an education research publisher, has named SUNY Canton among the top 10 disability-friendly online schools in the nation.

More than 1,200 schools were evaluated for the 2017 rankings and scored on criteria such as available resources and services, distance-learning accommodations, and universal learning design training. Ranked ninth, SUNY Canton joined elite institutions such as Stanford University, the University of Connecticut and the Rochester Institute of Technology as among the schools that received the highest overall scores.

Most Affordable Online Colleges - Disability Friendly“This prestigious ranking can be attributed to the outstanding work by our Office of Accommodative Disability Services, who are committed to ensuring students with disabilities reach their educational goals no matter their location,” said Molly A. Mott, associate provost and dean of academic support services and instructional technologies. “They are fully invested in providing online students with access to the most state-of-the-art assistive technology and other resources, such as tutoring and academic counseling.”

Mott said online students with a visual disability have access to equipment that converts textbook content into audio format, and those who are struggling academically can receive help from a peer or professional tutor via Skype, email, phone or other means through the college’s Betty J. Evans Tutoring Center.

“We take great pride in our ability to provide online students with the same level of support that we offer here on campus, particularly to those who require accommodative services,” she added.

SUNY Canton’s Online Programs Make U.S. News and World Report’s ‘Best Bachelor’s Degrees’ List

Thursday, February 23rd, 2017

SUNY CantonSUNY Canton’s online baccalaureate programs have been named among the best in the country for a third time by U.S. News and World Report.

The college was one of only three SUNY schools to earn a spot in this year’s rankings. Programs were scored on various categories including student engagement, faculty credentials and training, student services, admissions selectivity, and peer reputation.

“This recognition is a reflection of the time and resources SUNY Canton has invested into the quality of our online classes and programs throughout the past 15 years,” said President Zvi Szafran. “This award, along with our consistent online enrollment growth, is a direct result of that investment.”

The college was ranked 76th out of the more than 1,200 programs surveyed by U.S. News. Only regionally accredited institutions whose programs were offered in an online format were evaluated.

SUNY Canton currently offers 13 online degree programs and recently announced the launch of a Bachelor of Business Administration in Agribusiness Management, which can also be earned online. The program is designed to prepare students for skilled careers in agriculture.

“It’s important that we offer the option for students to earn their degree entirely online,” Szafran added. “Professionals who want to continue their education while working full time will benefit from the flexibility of our programs.”

In addition to new degree programs, the college has seen an increase in enrollments for its winter and summer off-term online sessions. In January, enrollment for the Winterterm session reached an all-time record for the third consecutive year. Students from both public and private colleges in New York and throughout the country utilize the sessions to fulfill requirements at their home institutions.

“Our off-term sessions deliver the same quality instruction SUNY Canton is known for to anyone, anywhere in an accelerated format,” said Molly A. Mott, associate provost and dean of academic support services and instructional technologies, “The abbreviated course schedule allows students to catch up or get ahead between traditional fall and spring semesters.”

The U.S. News online rankings for 2017 are available on their website.

SUNY Canton Breaks Winterterm Enrollment Record

Tuesday, January 10th, 2017

Enrollment for SUNY Canton’s online Winterterm session has reached an all-time record for the third consecutive year.

Total enrollment for the 2016-17 session is 1,474, which surpasses the previous record of 1,434, set last year. Classes began Dec. 21 and continue through Jan. 19.

According to Molly A. Mott, associate provost and dean of academic support services and instructional technologies, the session’s popularity is due to the variety of course offerings and the college’s reputation for excellence in online learning. Approximately 100 courses were available in an array of subjects, including finance, business, marketing, art history and creative writing.

“Our Winterterm session delivers the same quality instruction SUNY Canton is known for to anyone, anywhere in an accelerated format,” she said. “The four-week course schedule allows students to catch up or get ahead on credits between the fall and spring semesters from the comfort of their home.”

Mott noted that a large percentage of Winterterm enrollees are those who attend institutions other than SUNY Canton.

“As in the past, a significant number of students from public and private colleges throughout New York — such as Stony Brook, Syracuse University and Binghamton University — utilize our course offerings year after year.”

Off-term sessions such as Winterterm support SUNY system-wide completion goals by allowing students the flexibility to earn credits that may help them graduate on time or even early. Another advantage of the online session, Mott said, is that the college guarantees every course that is advertised will be offered.

SUNY Canton’s online degree programs have been ranked among the best in the country for three years in a row by U.S. News & World Report. In addition, several online programs have been specifically recognized by independent research organizations for their affordability, such as Finance, Legal Studies, Nursing, Health Care Management and Criminal Justice: Law Enforcement Leadership.

Winterterm’s growth closely mirrors the college’s online Summer Session, which has also enjoyed a significant increase in enrollments for the past three consecutive years.

Thursday, May 26th, 2016

SUNY CantonMore than 50 students will start college early this year at SUNY Canton.

The college will be holding its Jump Start residential program to help students as they transition from high school to college beginning July 25, approximately five weeks before the start of the Fall 2016 semester.

Other than a $105 deposit, which will be applied toward the semester’s fees, the program is offered free of charge to deserving students.

SUNY Canton and SUNY Potsdam Upgrade Student Internet Services

Monday, April 11th, 2016

Students at SUNY Canton and SUNY Potsdam can now upload, download and stream faster than ever before.

The colleges recently completed upgrades and began offering Apogee’s ResNet for free Wi-Fi in all of the residence halls on both campuses. The company is the largest provider of residential Internet solutions in higher education.

Pictured is Hannah Christensen with her suitemates in SUNY Canton’s Kennedy Hall. Students can connect several devices wirelessly with Apogee’s ResNet Wi-Fi.

The new connection is faster and more stable than previous years, according to Kyle A. Brown, Chief Information Officer at both SUNY Canton and SUNY Potsdam.

“The upgrade helps us stay ahead technologically as we seek to recruit new students who may be accustomed to faster Internet speeds,” Brown said. “It also allows us to maintain our attractiveness as a housing option for returning students.”

Students at both colleges now have access to:

  • High-speed networks with greater mobility, unrestricted access and bandwidth.
  • Wall-to-wall wireless access that extends to more common areas, including laundry and lounge rooms.
  • Around-the-clock network support for all student devices including desktops, laptops, PDAs and DVRs.
  • A dedicated full-time Apogee coordinator to provide on-site student support.

Brown said both colleges entered the agreement together and were able to leverage a shared contract. As an added benefit, students no longer need to purchase any equipment to broadcast or connect to Wi-Fi services in their buildings.

“We wanted this upgrade to improve the virtual resources available to our students,” said Molly A. Mott, SUNY Canton dean of academic support services and instructional technologies. “Better, more reliable connection speeds help students access their learning materials from the residence halls.”

Pictured are Stanley Martinez and Nathan Carr at a SUNY Potsdam residence hall. Students can connect to Wi-Fi without a modems or router through Apogee’s service.

SUNY Potsdam is also offering online classes and many instructors use online supplements to their classroom-based courses.

“SUNY Potsdam is proud to partner with our neighboring campus, SUNY Canton, to offer Apogee in the residence halls for our students. Students have told us that high-speed networks and wireless access are among the most important resources that we can offer to help them be successful in their academic pursuits,” said Director of Residence Life Eric Duchscherer.

“It’s 100 percent better than last year,” said Matthew J. Spencer, a SUNY Canton Sports Management major from Gouverneur who lives in Kennedy Hall. “There are fewer issues connecting and staying connected and there is no lag time for online games.”

Apogee provides residential Internet services for several SUNY Institutions. In addition to SUNY Canton and SUNY Potsdam, the company began partnerships with SUNY Delhi and SUNY Cobleskill this fall.

“We are honored to welcome the addition of these prestigious schools amongst our established SUNY partnerships,” said Chuck Brady, chief executive officer of Apogee in a press release. “We believe that our latest clients, like their SUNY peers, will come to rely on Apogee’s commitment to technological excellence to lay the foundation for their students’ academic success and quality of life.”

SUNY Canton Sets New Enrollment Record for Winterterm Session

Wednesday, December 23rd, 2015

SUNY Canton’s popular online Winterterm session has broken an enrollment record for the second year in a row.

Total enrollment for 2015 is 1,434, which surpasses the 2014 record of 1,322. The session began Dec. 16 and continues through Jan. 14.

winterterm15

According to Molly A. Mott, dean of academic support services and instructional technologies, the upward trend is due to a number of factors, including the college’s reputation for excellence in online learning, its student-centered policies and the expansion of course offerings.

“This year more than 100 courses were available in an array of disciplines, including business, finance, criminal justice and social science,” she said. “The variety appeals to students from not only the SUNY system, but from private colleges in New York state and across the country. They can earn credits that are transferrable to their home institution.”

SUNY Canton has been offering online courses during the Winterterm break since 2005, which originally consisted of 160 enrollments and 18 courses. Throughout the past 10 years, the college has seen a dramatic increase in demand for online courses and has attracted a large contingent of students from schools such as Syracuse University, Stony Brook University, SUNY Albany and SUNY Binghamton.

The college’s virtual classroom format allows students to catch up or get ahead on credits between the fall and spring semesters, which directly supports SUNY system-wide goals for access and completion. Another advantage of the online session, Mott said, is that the college guarantees every course that is advertised will be offered.

The successful Winterterm session follows on the heels of a record-breaking 2015 online Summer Session, which has seen a significant increase in enrollments during the past three years.

SUNY Canton Receives High Marks and Number One Rankings in Student Opinion Survey

Wednesday, October 21st, 2015

According to the 2015 SUNY Student Opinion Survey, SUNY Canton is excelling in student service-, academic- and facility-related areas.

The survey, which evaluates the 27 state-operated SUNY colleges and university centers, is conducted every three years and assesses student satisfaction in more than 50 areas. SUNY Canton earned number one rankings in three categories: library resources, library services and tutoring services.

“We’re extremely gratified that our students highly value our exceptional resources,” said SUNY Canton President Zvi Szafran. “We’re committed to ensuring their success, and these results—evaluated by the students themselves—prove it.”

The Southworth Library Learning Commons has most recently enhanced the laptop and iPad loan program; integrated Quick Response Codes, video and podcasts to meet patron needs; and expanded hours during exam periods.

“The Southworth Library Learning Commons is a focal point of engagement for the campus community,” said SUNY Canton Dean of Academic Support Services Molly A. Mott. “It is rich in academic resources, including our Tutoring Center, which offers both professional and peer tutors who support our students’ academic needs.”

The survey also measured SUNY Canton against six peer technology-sector institutions: Alfred State, SUNY Morrisville, SUNY Delhi, SUNY Cobleskill, SUNY Farmingdale, SUNY Maritime. SUNY Canton took the top spot in 13 areas, one of which was the quality of the college’s laboratory facilities.

“The college’s state-of-the-art nursing, veterinary technology, engineering technology labs, as well as the newly constructed Business Learning Center, are just a few examples of facilities that support hands-on, applied learning, which is a hallmark of SUNY Canton,” said SUNY Canton Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs Douglas M. Scheidt, Ph.D.

Another area that students ranked first among technology-sector schools was SUNY Canton’s Office of Career Services, which offers a number of resume writing, interview and networking workshops, as well as individualized coaching for those who are entering the work force. In addition, during the 2014-2015 academic year, the office brought nearly 100 local and regional employers to campus to recruit students for job opportunities.

“We like to begin working with first-year students in developing their resumes and creating a plan,” said SUNY Canton Director of Career Services Julie A. Parkman. “They continue to use our services throughout their academic career to obtain summer jobs or internships that enhance their educational knowledge. All these experiences prepare our students to begin their professional careers.”

Career Fair

Within the academic arena, students praised the availability of online courses, ranking the college first in the technology sector. Over the past several years, SUNY Canton has enjoyed increased growth in online course enrollments, due in large part to expanded course offerings. This year the college’s online programs were ranked among the best in the nation by U.S. News and World Report.

“SUNY Canton’s online courses offer the same high-quality instruction as a traditional classroom setting,” added Mott. “In addition, our Summer Session and Winterterm courses help students finish in four years, which supports SUNY System-wide goals for access and completion.”

Additional areas that earned the top spot in the survey when compared to technology-sector schools included athletic and recreational facilities, health and wellness programs, religious and spiritual programs and social media presence.
