 FAQs

Why is CSI expanding to a third location?
In expanding to St. George, Staten Island’s transportation hub, the College of Staten Island will make it easier for degree-seeking students that commute from Manhattan and the North Shore to attend classes, and offer greater options and opportunities for recent SI high school graduates.

Additionally, CSI St. George will provide expanded offerings from its Continuing Education and Workforce Development programs in the areas of healthcare and technology as well as college access programs.

The St. George center would also help foster goals of the 30,000 Degrees initiative, a collaborative effort among the borough's three colleges, CSI, Wagner College, and St. John's University, to encourage more Staten Island residents to pursue a college degree.

Where is the St. George extension located?
CSI’s St. George extension is located at 120 Stuyvesant Place, SI, NY 10301, minutes from the St. George Ferry Terminal, and easily accessible via MTA Buses and Trains. It is also only 7 miles from CSI’s main Willowbrook campus, which will offer convenient transportation to and from St. George via CSI’s Ferry Shuttle Service.

What is the timeline for the opening of CSI St. George?
CSI St. George is expected to open and offer select remedial and credit-bearing courses to matriculated students in Fall 2017.

Are newly admitted Undergraduate and Graduate students able to take courses at both the St. George extension and the Willowbrook campus?
Yes. All new and continuing College of Staten Island students will be offered the convenience of attending courses at either or both locations. However, students that identify St. George as their primary location will receive priority access to St. George course offerings.

If I am eligible for Financial Aid, can I apply it towards courses I attempt at CSI St. George?
Yes. Matriculated students in an associate or bachelor’s degree program that enroll in the requisite number of credits for full- or part-time status in courses that satisfy degree requirements will be considered academically eligible for their Financial Aid award/s.
