Apprentices who choose the college program will attend either Fulton-Montgomery Community College, State University of New York at Cobleskill or The College of Saint Rose, or will pursue online degree programs. They will participate in 2-year and 4-year degree programs in majors such as Business Administration, Computer Information Systems, Criminal Justice, Culinary Arts, Early Childhood Education, Animal Care, Engineering and Fine Arts.
College Apprentices will have total access to the Transitions Academic Success Center, where education staff assess the Apprentice’s academic interests and skills and assist the Apprentice in developing a personalized academic success plan. This will include liaising with the college on the Apprentice’s behalf and daily group or individual study hall, where staff assist the Apprentice in following the course syllabi, prioritizing assignments and managing time effectively.
Fulton-Montgomery Community College offers an additional Individual Studies certificate program called Collaborative Career Learning (COCAL). This program combines classroom learning, professional mentorship and hands-on workplace experience tailored to each student’s specific career goals.
