Student Right to Know

The federal Higher Education Opportunity Act (HEOA) requires colleges and universities to provide key information to students and the public. The primary reasons for insisting on such institutional accountability is to protect the student's ability to make informed decisions and to ensure federal financial aid is being used appropriately. This page provides easy access, through the links below, to this required information.

The following information is presented to all students upon acceptance of admission to SUNY Oneonta. It is also annually sent to students who have declared (as their program of study) degree programs that are licensure-/certification-qualifying:

Professional licensure and certification requirements often vary from state to state. At this time, SUNY Oneonta cannot confirm if programs that lead to professional licensure or certification meet the prerequisites for professional licensure or certification outside the State of New York. Students will need to contact the state licensing board relative to their program in the state they are seeking licensure from for further information.

If you are considering an academic program that leads to a professional license in your state, it is highly recommended that you first seek guidance from the appropriate licensing agency in your home state before beginning the academic program.
