International Education and Programs
Welcome to the Office of International Education and Programs at Farmingdale State
Farmingdale State College is a multicultural community of people from diverse backgrounds.
In alignment with the vision of the State University of New York, Farmingdale State College is committed to building a more informed and inclusive society through global learning by supporting equity and providing opportunities. Educational services of the highest quality must empower students and prepare them for the interconnected world. We seek to embed global learning as an integral part of the educational services provided by SUNY in support of communities across New York State and the world.
Our activities, programs, classes, workshops, lectures, and everyday interactions are enriched by our acceptance of one another, and we strive to learn from each other in an atmosphere of positive engagement and mutual respect.
In the Office of International Education and Programs, we look forward to guiding you through the possibilities of studying abroad, attending an international conference or participation in globally engaged teaching and learning.
The Office of International Education and Programs
The Office of International Education and Programs also administers exchange agreements and processes students for all SUNY-wide study abroad programs. Our staff supports the needs of all students who study abroad. Students living and studying in a foreign country will gain in-depth knowledge of another culture's customs, people, and language. Studying abroad can promote academic enrichment and personal growth, broaden intellectual horizons and enhance employment opportunities.
NEW - Residence Access Program
If you are a new student—freshman, transfer, or international—who is enrolling for Fall '19, you may qualify for Farmingdale’s new Resident Access Program (RAP). This program provides a $2,000 award for qualified resident hall students who live in-state and a $4,000 award for those who qualify from out-of-state. Awards will be based on a variety of factors including academic performance and need. Students will remain eligible for the award as long as they stay in good academic standing as a full-time student and resident hall occupant. No special application required, but students must submit a FAFSA. All new students will be considered, but you must submit both your admissions application by May 1 and your resident hall application by July 15.
