The Student Achievement Measure is supported by six sponsoring associations, working together to provide a more comprehensive and accurate picture of student progress and completion as students move across institutions and state boundaries.

Farmingdale State College

Farmingdale State College is an engine of opportunity for students of Long Island and beyond. Dedicated to student success, FSC prepares students with the education, skills and critical thinking ability needed to meet the challenges of our world, today and in our future. As the largest of SUNY’s colleges of technology (about 10,000 students), Farmingdale equips students with the resources and knowledge sought by today’s emerging industries. Offering master, bachelor and associate degrees, Farmingdale offers unique programs such as Geographic Information Systems, Interaction Design, and Technology Management (our first graduate degree). A SUNY leader in applied learning, students have abundant experiential learning opportunities - internships, clinical training, and guided research - that provide practical instruction and personal growth through the Nexus Center for Applied Learning and Career Development. Small, personalized classes, a residence hall with suite-style living, a lush 380-acre campus undergoing major renovations, and a highly successful NCAA Division III athletics program with modern facilities make Farmingdale State College one of the fastest-growing colleges in the region. In 2020, FSC received the 2020 Carnegie Community Engagement Classification, a selective designation indicating institutional commitment to community engagement. In addition, in 2020 U.S. News & World Report ranks Farmingdale #11 among top public colleges in the north. In a survey of 2018-2019 graduates six months after graduation, 92% of respondents reported employment and/or continuing their education. Ninety-six percent of working graduates are employed in New York State with the majority in the New York City Metro area and Long Island.
