Each year Farmingdale State College bestows “Awards for Academic Excellence” on two students in each major who have been selected by the faculty as truly outstanding. The primary consideration for selection is the student’s overall grade point average in coursework completed at Farmingdale. Additional consideration is given to exceptional performance in areas including research, internships, special student projects, and contribution to departmental clubs and honor societies.
The Chancellor's Award for Student Excellence acknowledges students who have received recognition for student excellence. This award recognizes students who have integrated academic excellence with leadership, community service, the arts, athletics, or career achievement.
