On Wednesday, Dec. 22, the entire Mohonasen High School senior class was welcomed into SUNY Schenectady as part of an Instant Admit Day event. As a result, more than 200 students were admitted to the college without having to submit an individual application. This is the first time Mohonasen has partnered with SUNY Schenectady for an Instant Admit Day.

A celebratory assembly was held at the high school and included students as well as college and district officials.Students stand in auditorium while holding blue shirts up in front of them and looking at camera

“This is all about opportunities for you, our seniors,” Superintendent of Schools Shannon Shine told students in attendance at the event. “Some of you are already planning to extend your education past high school. If that is you, then you are in good hands with SUNY Schenectady. The tuition is affordable, classes are local, and the academic offerings are broad and deep.”

Students who attend next year will have a variety of unique academic options, including Hospitality & Tourism Management, Culinary Arts, Criminal Justice, Business Administration and Aviation.

“We are delighted to offer this Instant Admit program to the entire senior class at Mohonasen High School and have Mohonasen students join the SUNY Schenectady family,” said Dr. Steady Moono, President of SUNY Schenectady. “Students at Mohonasen are already gaining the advantage of earning college credits through our College in the High School program. Through today’s Instant Admit event, they can join the SUNY Schenectady community now to start on their path in higher education to achieve their goals.”

“We are all about preparing our students for what comes next, so this is a perfect fit for us,” said Mohonasen High School Principal Craig Chandler. “Even if our seniors don’t know exactly what will come next, they will know they have a very good option with SUNY Schenectady. We are thankful to SUNY Schenectady for this opportunity and value our partnership.”

Congratulations to the Class of 2022 on this exciting opportunity!
