Three local students transfer to SUNY Canton
More than 200 students transferred to SUNY Canton for the Spring 2021 semester.
The college's Director of Admissions Melissa J. Evans said, "We pride ourselves on our ability to provide the right programs and services for our transfer students."
In addition to traditional college freshmen and transfer populations, Evans said the college's current recruiting strategy includes reaching students who attended college but never completed a degree.
"We are able to walk people through the process of applying to college whether they've been away for a few months or 10 years," she said. "We can help evaluate transcripts before beginning the application process."
Among the students who transferred are:
- Dawn Hunter, a SUNY Canton Legal Studies major from Batavia;
- Zechariah Gowanlock, a SUNY Canton Emergency Management major from East Bethany;
- Tonya Smith, a SUNY Canton Health Care Management major from Le Roy.
