Goals of the MERITS Program

The MERITS Program of SUNY Cobleskill is designed to support qualifying students in becoming the best students they can be.  We believe this can be achieved by utilizing a variety of support mechanisms.  These supports include:


  • Mentors
  • Engagement to campus and community
  • Referrals to services and agencies
  • Informal counseling and advisement at CASE
  • Tutor services
  • Structured study hours


The intention of this program is to enhance the retention and success rates of students.
