SUNY Oneonta's 72% six-year graduation rate is well above the national average of 53% for public colleges and universities.
SUNY Oneonta students are well prepared for life after college. By the time they hit senior year, nearly three-fourths have been involved in at least two high-impact learning experiences—like studying abroad, doing research with a faculty member, participating in a service-learning project, or completing an internship. These powerful experiences will not only help you discover what you really want to do, they'll give you the tools to succeed—whether that means launching a fulfilling career, or continuing your education.
