Special Admissions Programs

Early Admissions to Undergraduate Programs
SUNY Potsdam offers early admission to exceptionally qualified high school juniors and seniors. Find out if you qualify!

Bridges Program
The Bridges Program is a special admissions program designed to provide college admission to students who show potential for success despite falling slightly below our regular admissions requirements. Bridges students will be formally enrolled in the program for their first two semesters of college, however students can continue to access guidance and support beyond the first year.

Education Opportunity Program (EOP)
EOP provides academic support and financial aid to students who show promise for mastering college-level work, but who may otherwise not be accepted. Students must qualify both academically and financially in order to gain admission into the program. Students from historically disadvantaged backgrounds are given priority. Please view the EOP site for more information.

Path to Potsdam Program
The Path to Potsdam Program offers a way for students who apply to SUNY Potsdam but are not quite ready for acceptance to complete associate level coursework through North Country Community College. Path to Potsdam students will live and study on the SUNY Potsdam campus, all while completing degrees taught by NCCC faculty. Once they have completed their associate degrees, Path to Potsdam students are eligible to transfer to complete their bachelor’s degrees at SUNY Potsdam.
