Officials from SUNY Orange and St. John’s University formalized
an agreement today that paves the way for graduates of SUNY
Orange’s new two-year cyber security degree program to acquire a
bachelor’s degree in computer security systems from St. John’s in
the minimum amount of time.
The agreement, signed by College President Dr. William Richards
and St. John’s University Provost Dr. Julia A. Upton, RSM, also
facilitates the transfer of credits to the computer science program
at St. John’s for graduates of SUNY Orange’s web development and
computer science degree programs. In addition, students who
graduate from SUNY Orange’s networking program will be able to
transfer smoothly to the networking and telecommunications
bachelor’s degree program at St. John’s.
SUNY Orange’s cyber security, networking, web development and
computer science degrees--all overseen by the College’s Applied
Technologies Department--prepare students for employment in a wide
variety of in-demand careers. This new articulation agreement with
St. John’s and its College of Professional Studies establishes a
formal framework for SUNY Orange graduates to easily progress
toward a bachelor’s degree if they so choose.
