This program is non-credit coursework designed to help new students who place into developmental courses meet their reading, writing, and math requirements as quickly as possible. Many students who participate in the Summer College Readiness Program have the opportunity to begin the Fall semester in college-level coursework.

The Pre-semester Accelerations present a special opportunity for new SUNY Orange students who have placed into any of these courses:

Basic Writing Skills 1 (WRT 030)

Basic Writing Skills 2 (WRT 040)

Fundamentals of Algebra (MAT 020)

Fundamentals of Arithmetic (MAT 010)

The Summer Institute presents a special opportunity for new SUNY Orange students who have placed into both Basic Writing Skills 2 (WRT 040) and either Reading & Study Skills 1 (RDG 070) or Reading & Study Skills 2 (RDG 080).

These accelerated immersion courses are designed to review, refresh and reinforce basic language and math skills through instruction and intensive practice. Students who successfully complete these courses will be reevaluated upon completion to determine their final placement for the Fall semester.
