Helping You Grow and Graduate ASAP

SUNY ASAP: Accelerated Study in Associate Programs

We understand that earning an associate degree may not be easy, but it is well worth it.

To increase the number of students who can finish their degree on time, SUNY’s Advancing Success in Associate Pathways (ASAP) program was designed to provide an unparalleled level of support – both inside and outside of the classroom.

This support comes in a variety of important ways, including a cost of attendance award after financial aid is applied, a travel and textbook stipend, comprehensive personalized advisement services, academic support assistance, and career development activities.

Many SUNY students who are eligible for Pell are eligible for ASAP.

To get started, please call 631-451-4311, email ASAP@sunysuffolk.edu or click the button below.
