The MERITS Program at SUNY Cobleskill is designed to provide access to academic and social support for students who show promise for mastering college-level work, that may otherwise not be considered for general admission.
MERITS is a two-semester commitment. The student accepted into the SUNY Cobleskill MERITS Program must clearly understand that they are being given the opportunity to obtain a college education.
To accommodate the students’ needs, our program is staffed with professionals whose primary responsibilities are to assist students in achieving their educational goals.
Our vision is to provide services that are rooted in the belief that each individual student can grow and develop to their full potential. The first stage of engagement in this vision is the MERITS Academy Program.
