Corporate and Community Partnership Benefits Program

SUNY Empire State College has partnered with many corporations, businesses, community organizations and associations to provide high-quality, affordable education to working adults. Employees, members and students of partner organizations are eligible to receive partnership benefits.

Partnership benefits include:

  • waiver of orientation fee ($50 value) at time of submission of online admissions application (certificate programs are ineligible)
  • a one-time, $100 Presidential Scholarship applied to the student’s first term of enrollment in a degree program
  • Note: students must be enrolled past day 28 of the term to remain eligible for the scholarship.

Students must provide a valid partnership code at the time of application in order to receive these benefits. The code can be obtained from the designated representative at the partner organization
