Farmingdale State College

Farmingdale State College has been transformed into a campus that prepares students with the education, skills, and critical thinking to meet the challenges of tomorrow. As the largest of SUNY’s colleges of technology (with approximately 7,000 students), Farmingdale equips its students with the resources and knowledge sought by today’s emerging industries—just one reason that seven of our BA programs have a 100 percent employment rate.

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 new residence hall with suite-style living, a lush 380-acre campus undergoing major renovations in excess of $185 million, and a highly successful NCAA Division III athletics program with modern facilities get Farmingdale State College students ready for a whole new world—the real world.


New baccalaureate programs include Medical Technology, Software Technology, Applied Psychology, Applied Economics, and Bioscience. Unique offerings include the only aviation program in a public college in New York State and the only dental hygiene program in the region. Our School of Business is one of the fastest-growing in SUNY, and our Solar Energy Center and Institute for Research and Technology Transfer are engaged in pioneering research to develop alternative energy.

Farmingdale is Growing

Our enrollment of full-time students has increased 62 percent since 2000—one of the highest percentage increases in SUNY. Why is Farmingdale so popular?

•    Attractive and challenging academic programs

•    Expert faculty

•    Affordable SUNY tuition—just $6,030 a year

Our beautiful campus, located in the heart of Long Island, is growing, too. A new Campus Center is scheduled to open in 2011. A new building for the School of Business will soon follow. Other renovations and new construction include academic buildings, research laboratories, and an Information Commons. Plus, our athletic facilities boast a lighted, synthetic turf baseball stadium, a synthetic turf lacrosse/soccer field, and new tennis courts.

For resident students, a new residential hall offers modern amenities and a social setting where you’ll make friends for life.

Students Are the Priority

At Farmingdale, we strive to put students first. In fact, that’s the name of a new initiative—“Students First”—designed to enhance the total student experience, whether it’s through designing dynamic Student Life programs, streamlining registration procedures, or creating a pleasing learning environment.
