Student-Focused Initiative Dramatically Increases Degree Completion  

Beginning this spring, Farmingdale State College (FSC) will be one of 12 State University of New York (SUNY) campuses to participate in the Accelerate, Complete, and Engage (ACE) Program, an exciting new SUNY initiative to meaningfully improve student support, retention, and degree completion.
