We recognize that students attending graduate school at SUNY Cortland are a diverse group. Some students may be continuing their education directly after earning a bachelor’s degree, others may be returning after spending time working or raising a family. Many graduate students continue to work full time, raise a family and take a class or two in the evening; others choose to pursue a full course load each semester. Graduate course work may be taken on a matriculated, non-matriculated or non-degree seeking basis.
Whatever your situation, the staff in Advisement and Transition is here to offer support and resource information to help you be successful and connect to campus as you continue your education. Tracy Frenyea, Academic Advisor and Coordinator of Graduate Student Support can assist you with referral information and support.
Contact our office if you have questions and don't know where to turn. You may also find helpful information on the Graduate Admissions site.
Please check back often as we continue to add content aimed at supporting our graduate student population.
