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 continues to prepare students with the education, skills, and critical thinking needed to meet the challenges of tomorrow. As the largest of SUNY’s colleges of technology (with over 9,300 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 Interaction Design and Technology Management (our first MS degree). At Farmingdale, students also have abundant opportunities in experiential learning—internships, clinical training, and guided research—that provide practical instruction and personal growth. Small, personalized classes, a residence hall with suite-style living, a lush 380-acre campus undergoing major renovation, 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 addition, in 2017 U.S. News & World Report ranks Farmingdale #17 (up from #32) among regional colleges in the north. In a survey of 2014-15 graduates, 91% of respondents reported employment within 6 months of graduation, and of those employed 74% are employed in a field related to their degree.
