College of Staten Island of the City University of New York
The College of Staten Island (CSI) is a four-year, senior college within The City University of New York (CUNY) with a highly-regarded baccalaureate curriculum. Students build a thorough Liberal Arts background as they explore a range of fields and acquire knowledge in mathematics, the sciences, social sciences, arts and humanities. Requirements for the bachelor's degree provide a disciplined and cumulative program of study in over 80 majors.
CSI, named a 2015 U.S. News and World Report Best College, has reached record enrollment of approximately 14,400 students of diverse backgrounds. It offers experiential learning and mentorship opportunities, study abroad, vibrant campus life, selective programs, flexible scheduling, scholarships, financial aid, and luxury on-campus apartment style housing.
Broad Array of Associate's and Bachelor's Degrees
CSI offers over 80 undergraduate degree programs ranging from the liberal arts to technology, engineering, biological sciences, and professional studies.
CSI's liberal arts curriculum helps students discover a core of study in order to determine a major leading to a bachelor's degree. In addition to the wide selection of undergraduate programs, CSI also offers masters, post-masters, and doctoral programs.
Largest New York Campus
CSI is situated on a sprawling 204-acre campus located in the heart of Staten Island. As the largest continuous college campus (public or private) within New York City, its scenic landscape creates a rural oasis in an urban setting, with mature trees, lawns, and gardens.
State-of-the-art facilities are the hallmark of CSI's campus. Highlights include: a 16-foot domed astrophysical observatory housing one of the most powerful telescopes on the eastern seaboard, CSI's very own supercomputer- the most powerful on the East Coast, the 77,000 square-foot Sports and Recreation Center, the student-operated radio station WSIA-FM, the Advanced Imaging Facility, and the ultramodern Center for the Arts.
CSI is dedicated to keeping its magnificent campus student centered and up to date; thus CSI's Master Plan for expansion is well underway. The spring 2014 semester marked the end of CSI's first year as a residential campus, featuring high-end on campus apartment style housing for CUNY students. Further updates will include the highly anticipated Interdisciplinary High-Performance Computational Center and a planned expansion to the library and campus center.
The College of Staten Island offers three selective academic programs. The Macaulay Honors College provides a full scholarship to high-achieving students with a special honors curriculum of innovative and challenging courses during the first and second years of study. The Verrazano School offers students a unique undergraduate education through academically motivated learning communities, while stressing the importance of career development. The Teacher Education Honors Academy at CSI selects students who are passionate about mathematics and science and want to inspire enthusiasm for those subject areas in public middle and high school students.
Comprehensive Support and Student Services
CSI believes that students flourish in a supportive environment. Facilitated by the Office of Academic Support, free services such as online and supplemental instruction, workshops and multidisciplinary tutoring enhance students' academic success. In addition to academic support services, CSI's Office of Financial Aid expedites students' access to public financial assistance programs for post-secondary education.
CSI's Veteran Support Services Office and Veterans Educational Transition Services provide exceptional guidance to those who have served in the armed forces. One of the most notable benefits is that CSI accepts all credits earned through military training. Due to these services, G.I. Jobs magazine ranked CSI in the top 15% of 'Military-Friendly' schools in the country.
Through the Center for Student Accessibility, differently-abled students are aided with programs, services, and facilities designed for students with special learning needs and hearing, vision and mobility impairments.
