Oswego Guarantee

The Oswego Guarantee is our partnership with you on your journey through college. We want you to earn your bachelor’s degree at Oswego, and we are committed to working together with you toward achieving this goal. Therefore, we make the following guarantees to you.

Stable Costs

We guarantee no increase in the cost of room or meal plans for four consecutive academic years. As you and your family plan for college, this means the major portion of the cost of a residential education will remain constant for four years.

Room and Board

Access To The Courses You Need

We guarantee that the necessary classes will be available to complete a baccalaureate degree in four consecutive academic years of full-time study. If you meet the academic expectations described below and cannot graduate after four years because of course unavailability, the college will enroll you in the remaining course or courses necessary to meet graduation requirements tuition-free.

Our Programs

Networks That Matter

We guarantee an alumni mentor to every student who desires one. Students who sign up will be assigned a mentor who will share experiences and tips, listen to your questions and concerns, and be a source of guidance as you move through your college experience and into your professional career.

Alumni-Sharing-Knowledge Program

Individual Attention

We guarantee continued availability of small classes because we believe that small classes offer the greatest opportunity for discussion and interaction between faculty and students.

It All Adds Up

We guarantee that SUNY Oswego will provide a $300 Graduation Return on Investment (ROI) if you enter Oswego in the fall semester as a first-time, full-time freshman and earn your baccalaureate degree in four consecutive academic years or less. The Oswego Graduation ROI is our commitment to your future, and it is recognition of your hard work and determination; The ROI is a $300 incentive to first-year students who graduate on time. Designed to propel you forward, $300 could help make a car payment or buy a new suit for an interview. It’s a small way we say “good job” for being timely! In the big picture, the return on investment in earning a timely Oswego degree is so much more…

To qualify for the Oswego Guarantee and Graduation ROI, you must enroll in the fall term as a full-time freshman, declare a major no later than your fourth semester, meet with an academic advisor at least once a semester to verify you are still on course to graduate within four years, fulfill the major and college requirements as described in the college catalog and graduate with a baccalaureate degree in four consecutive years or less.
