SCCC gears up for Albany launch
Schenectady County Community College is hosting instant admission and registration sessions in the coming weeks at its new downtown Albany satellite campus.
The campus at 112 State St. will open in January for the Spring 2014 semester.
The admission/registration sessions will be held Monday, Dec. 30 and the week of Jan. 6-10. Two sessions have been held already. Each one goes from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. in the building's first-floor Cahill Room.
"We want all of our future students to get a true feeling of what SCCC will offer them at our new extension site," said SCCC Board of Trustees Chairwoman Denise Murphy McGraw in a news release. "We are very excited to see this project near completion and cannot wait to get classes started on January 21 in downtown Albany."
SCCC announced plans for the new site in January 2013. In November, it was transforming 10,000 square feet of space on the second floor of the Harold L. Joyce Albany County Office Building into classroom facilities. The campus should accommodate about 1,000 students.
Courses at the Albany campus will be available in the following programs: alternative energy technology, casino and gaming management, chemical dependency counseling certificate, hospitality and tourism management, medical coding and billing certificate, nanoscale materials technology, paralegal and supply chain management.
