SUNY Potsdam is a liberal arts college which means our degree-seeking students declare a specialized area of study but also take courses outside of their program area. We strongly encourage all of our incoming exchange students to take a class or two outside of their normal academic program area.
Work with your academic department at your home university to plan the coursework you will take while on exchange at SUNY Potsdam. Ideally you will choose coursework that will transfer and satisfy the necessary degree requirements at your home university to keep you on track to graduate when expected.
Incoming Exchange Students can explore SUNY Potsdam's majors and minors to learn more about the academic areas offered and read course descriptions.
Please wait for the course listings to be posted (late March for the fall semester; mid-October for the spring semester) to ensure an accurate list of course offerings for the semester in which you are on exchange to SUNY Potsdam.
In order for us to complete your schedule of classes and register you for courses, you must complete a Course Registration Form.
For detailed information and instructions on each of the areas outlined above, read carefully
