Brentwood, NY - May 11, 2015 - Legislator Sarah Anker was honored to attend the signing of the recent public-private partnership between Suffolk County Community College (SCCC) and Long Island University (LIU) with Suffolk County Presiding Officer DuWayne Gregory at SCCC’s Grant campus in Brentwood on April 30. The partnership involves the establishment of the joint admissions “ExpressSuccess” program, which will allow SCCC students to be simultaneously accepted into select programs of study offered by both SCCC and LIU, placing them on track toward earning an Associate’s degree from SCCC and a Bachelor’s degree from LIU.
“The ExpressSuccess Program partnership with Suffolk County Community College and Long Island University is the first of its kind in the nation,” said Legislator Anker. “The program will provide additional opportunities for our Associate graduates to continue their education to acquire a four-year degree, thereby increasing their ability to obtain a higher paying job.”
“This cooperative agreement between Suffolk County Community College and Long Island University is an innovative program that offers our community college students a direct path to a baccalaureate degree,” said Presiding Officer DuWayne Gregory. “This is a great education opportunity for our young people and continues to show that Suffolk County Community College is a leader in the field of education on Long Island and state-wide.”
ExpressSuccess students can choose from more than a dozen degree-granting programs, including accounting, business, early childhood education, nursing and more.
