Program Benefits

The transition to college-level study is challenging for most students. This is especially true for international students who also have to adjust to a different culture, a different language, and different education system.

Cambridge Education Group programs have been helping international students succeed in their university goals for more than 60 years. Our vast experience in educating students from all over the world has led to the refined and detailed ONCAMPUS SUNY program which includes:

  • A supportive environment that helps students acclimate quickly
  • Instruction that builds academic skills (researching, using the library, making presentations)
  • Ongoing instruction to build English language proficiency for general academics
  • Ongoing instruction to build English language proficiency specific to a chosen path of study
  • TOEFL preparation
  • Ability to earn the same college credits typical of any first year student

Earn the credits you need, take the courses that interest you

The curriculum within ONCAMPUS SUNY has specifically been designed to support your growth as a student within the US University system.  Most universities require students to complete General Education Requirement courses.

The ONCAMPUS SUNY curriculum allows students the opportunity to earn general education credits, thus fulfilling the SUNY General Education Requirements and placing students in 2nd year status upon entering a SUNY bachelor’s degree program.

ONCAMPUS SUNY advisors will assist students with selecting the best courses that fit their individual interests and that will also go towards their General Education Requirements.
