Delta College is an intentionally small cohort of motivated students who are interested in enhancing their academic careers through experiential learning. Delta College is designed to create a love for learning in its students through rich community, an innovative curriculum, professional experience, and multicultural interactions.
In order to preserve the intimate atmosphere and allow for adequate support, admission into the program is capped at seventy-five students each year. All majors and certification programs offered at the College are compatible with our program and welcome to apply. There are no GPA or standardized test requirements. Instead, acceptance is based upon an essay and possible interview. We look for students whose aspirations align with our program.
Learning Community – Delta students & alumni cherish its rich history & deep sense of community. Many refer to Delta as their family or home away from home. The small class sizes, dedicated faculty and staff, peer mentors, extracurricular events, supportive alumni, and the residential Living & Learning Community all contribute to this Delta identity.
Innovative Curriculum – Delta students major in the field of their choice. They also enroll in Delta’s own integrated, interdisciplinary curriculum. Delta courses don’t just cover Brockport’s general education requirements; they go further. They tie different subjects, themes & experiences together into a unified educational experience.
Professional Program - Delta students prepare for life after college by developing their professional skills. They write résumés & cover letters, create and collect professional portfolios, practice interviewing, and learn negotiating skills, among other things. With the help of faculty mentors, they network within their communities or within the wider job market to find internships and field placements. All Delta students complete three experiential learning practicums. Many of them have jump started their careers with a Delta internship.
Unique Opportunity – Delta College is unique within the SUNY system. It began as a time-shortened degree program in the early 1970s which allowed students to graduate early. A time-variable option is still available for particular majors at the College at Brockport. Delta College aspires to stay on the cutting edge of educationand continues to function as a creative & practical learning lab at The College at Brockport.
"I love that Delta has small specialized classes that have helped me not only excel in school but in the real world, and that it is full of professors who truly care about our well-being and our careers." -Sarah Albers (Class of 2016 Delta Student)
