How Does the Program Work?
Once accepted into the Springbrook Scholars program, you will choose one of the three graduate degree tracks and begin fulfilling degree requirements while working at Springbrook. Many classes for Springbrook Scholar degrees will be held on Springbrook's Main Campus, with a few SUNY Oneonta courses held on their campus. Semester schedules are planned to allow students to successfully manage work and school. The best part about the program is that Springbrook pays for Springbrook Scholar tuition from each school! As long as you receive passing grades in all courses and keep up the good job at work, we will pay the bill. Keep in mind, though Springbrook will pay the tuition bill, Springbrook Scholars are responsible for the cost of books each semester.
What If You Leave Springbrook?
As a Springbrook Scholar, we are making a considerable investment in you and your future and we would like you to be invested in Springbrook. Upon acceptance into the program, you will be asked to sign an agreement to work at Springbrook for two years following graduation. If you choose to leave Springbrook anytime in those two years, you may be required to repay up to 100% of your tuition. If you decide to leave Springbrook anytime during your graduate studies, you will be financially liable for the tuition payment of the semester in which you are currently enrolled. After leaving Springbrook, if you choose to remain enrolled in your graduate school to complete your degree, you will be responsible for all remaining tuition bills.
