Dual Admission

Direct Path - Dual Admission RN to BS in Nursing Programs

There are dual admission programs between both Onondaga Community College and Cayuga Community College associate degree in nursing programs and then Upstate Medical University’s online bachelor in nursing program. The goal of the joint initiative is to align the efforts of all three schools to foster a consistent pipeline of well-qualified nurses to work in New York state. Accepted students will be connected both to the community college and to Upstate from the very start of the program. As part of the Direct Path Program, accepted students are able to apply for several positions with guaranteed interviews for relevant positions at Upstate Medical University. 

Students apply directly for the dual programs through either community college partner;
