Frequently Asked Questions

Is Delta College a separate college?

No. We function as a college within the College. We are an academic unit that was chartered by SUNY to be a part of The College at Brockport. We offer an alternate route for fulfilling Brockport’s general education requirements.

Why have I never heard of Delta before?

Delta is one of a kind! It’s only offered at Brockport. No other institution has an identical program.

Can one join Delta at any time?

Delta is open to incoming first-year students. Because we have our own curriculum, entry later than the first year becomes impractical. Upperclassmen have already completed many general education courses.

What’s the catch?

If there is one aspect of the program that could be considered a "catch," it would be that Delta is only open to incoming first-year students at this time. 

Is Delta a good fit for commuters?

Delta is the perfect fit for commuters! It provides a learning community and designated campus space where they can feel at home.

Do Delta College credits transfer to other colleges or universities?

Our credits transfer the same as any other credits from The College at Brockport but sometimes require a letter of explanation.

Are Delta College students isolated from the rest of the student body?

They are actually some of the most integrated students at Brockport. They major in every academic discipline, and many of them serve as leaders throughout campus.

Do Delta College students excel academically?

Delta College students have repeatedly been awarded top academic honors such as the Chancellor’s Award, department awards, and other campus-wide awards. A majority of Deltas graduate with honors (cum laude, magna cum laude, or summa cum laude).

Does Delta College provide a good path towards graduate school?

Yes! Many Delta alumni have gone on to become lawyers, doctors, professors, and other esteemed professionals.

Does being in Delta College make studying abroad easier?

Delta courses are scheduled in such a way that students can easily block out a semester or two for study abroad.

If I join Delta, do I have to graduate in three years?

Some majors have too many requirements to be completed in three years. Many students choose to stay for four years. They add a second major or another minor.

Are Delta classes different?

They are smaller and emphasize cooperation and teamwork. They foster a deep sense of community and freedom of thought.
