SUNY New Paltz provides an orientation program for all new students at the start of each semester. The orientation introduces the services and facilities of the school so that students can get the most out of their studies. In addition, students receive testing and placement services as part of their orientation.
Over the past year, students have come from 22 different countries including Albania, Brazil, Chile, China, Colombia, Ecuador, Greece, India, Iran, Italy, Ivory Coast, Japan, Korea, Peru, Russia, Saudi Arabia, Spain, Switzerland, Taiwan, Thailand, Turkey and Venezuela.
Our classes have typically held between 8 and 12 students. However, actual class size may depend on the number of students enrolled.
You will be tested upon arrival to determine your placement. However, if you have test scores, you may submit them with your application. Your test scores may be evaluated and you may be eligible for pre-placement into our Advanced or Academic Purposes level.
In fact, you may be able to take advantage of our Pathway programand receive conditional admission to a degree program.
