Welcome to Sage College of Albany! We look forward to seeing you at Transfer Orientation on Friday, August 18th or for Fall First Year Orientation beginning on Friday, August 25th. All of us at SCA want you to be successful as you begin your educational journey here and our Orientation programs are a great way to get connected to your new campus and classmates. Our orientation program has been planned with your success in mind!

During the orientation program, you will have the opportunity to get to know your new classmates and meet and talk with returning students as well.  Our Orientation Leaders will be available to assist and answer any questions you may have.  In addition, you will have the chance to meet your deans, faculty, and administrators from various offices on campus!

We are very excited for your arrival and look forward to seeing you during the upcoming Orientation programs!
