SUNY ORANGE UNVEILS NEW MOBILE PHONE APP FOR CURRENT STUDENTS
Available for Android and Apple devices, App Provides Access to Most Commonly Used Student Services
MIDDLETOWN, N.Y. – In an effort to give current students another alternative for accessing some of the most commonly used student services functions of the College and its web site, SUNY Orange has unveiled a new mobile phone app for android and Apple devices.
Available in the Google Play and Apple App stores by searching “SUNY Orange,” the app offers information and links to course schedules, the Registrar’s Office, paying bills and the Bursar’s Office, the Financial Aid Office and Academic Advising Office. Users will be able to directly email or telephone selected offices with one touch of their device’s screen.
For those students still deciding on a major, the app contains a short description for each of SUNY Orange’s current degree and certificate programs. Additionally, there are shortcuts within the app that will direct prospective students, employees and community members to useful information. The app also provides shortcuts to schedules for College and student events, the College’s social media accounts, links to other helpful information on the College website, and directions to the Middletown and Newburgh campuses.
An interactive “Orange Live!” photo sharing feature allows students to upload photos directly to a gallery, within the app, for others to view. The app, developed with Conduit Mobile, will also allow the College, if necessary, to push important and time-sensitive messages out to app users.
