SCCC will soon extend its reach in the Capital Region, by serving students in the city of Albany through a new partnership with Albany County. Students will be able to take classes on the second floor of the Albany County Office Building, located at 112 State St. Through an innovative ridership program, students will also be able to ride CDTA buses from the county building to the College's main campus in Schenectady.

Last year SCCC began offering classes at Center City in downtown Schenectady, which turned out to be a huge success with the College offering more and more classes in that location. College officials expect that the new nearly 10,000-square-foot extension site in Albany will be just as successful, continuing the College's mission to provide quality, comprehensive education for transfer, careers, training and workforce development to a diverse population in a student-centered environment.
