SUNY Canton Offers Scholarships to Students Formerly Enrolled in Partnership with American University in Bosnia and Herzegovina (AUBiH)

To Whom it May Concern:

Thank you for inquiring about the partnership between SUNY Canton and the American University in Bosnia and Herzegovina (AUBiH).

The partnership between SUNY Canton and the American University of Bosnia and Herzegovina concluded on November 1, 2011. At the time of its conclusion, there were 285 students enrolled in years two, three and four of their undergraduate education. Although SUNY Canton has been willing and able to work with those students in a distance education format to allow for degree completion, the cost of direct enrollment was a hindrance for many of them. 

Fortunately, SUNY Canton has identified a source of funding for scholarships and is now able to assist the students formerly enrolled in the AUBiH-SUNY Canton partnership in completing their degrees directly with SUNY Canton at the lowest possible tuition rate.

The scholarship rates to be offered are US $175 per credit for the spring and summer 2012 semesters, and $230 per credit for the fall 2012 semester. After the fall 2012 semester, the tuition rate will be subject to modest increases of up to seven percent each year, in accordance with SUNY’s tuition policy.  This special arrangement allows SUNY to charge this lowest possible tuition rate through the completion of the student’s degree program.

Advisors are available at SUNY Canton to assist students in navigating this process. All student inquiries regarding degree completion should be directed to SUNY Canton Director of International Programs Marela Fiacco, either by email (fiaccom@canton.edu) or telephone (+1-315-386-7608).  

For more information, we ask that you review the frequently asked questions below.

Sincerely,

Mitch Leventhal
Vice Chancellor for Global Affairs
The State University of New York

Will I have an advisor to assist me?

Yes. SUNY Canton will provide students with an advisor who will ensure that students are enrolled in the courses needed for degree completion, and help calculate tuition and fees. Students will also need to provide official transcripts from AUBiH as soon as possible, so SUNY Canton can ensure proper course enrollment.

After the fall 2012 semester, the tuition rate will be subject to modest increases of up to seven percent each year, in accordance with SUNY’s tuition policy. 

The last class of applicants admitted to the dual degree program were admitted to SUNY Canton in the fall of 2010. No students were admitted into the program after that time. The special scholarship arrangement is only available to students currently enrolled with SUNY Canton who were admitted under the terms of the partnership, prior to October 5, 2010.

Can new students enroll in the dual degree program with AUBiH?

No. The partnership agreement between SUNY Canton and AUBiH is expired and will not be renewed.  Therefore, there no longer is a dual-degree program between SUNY Canton and AUBiH. 

SUNY Canton welcomes new applicants to its programs on a direct enrollment basis; however no new students should enroll at AUBiH with the expectation of completing a SUNY degree, as that possibility no longer exists.
