MORRISVILLE, N.Y. — SUNY Morrisville, in collaboration with International Pathway Programs (IPP), has signed a transfer agreement with Beijing Foreign Studies University's School of English and International Studies (SEIS), one of China’s most prestigious universities.

SUNY Morrisville is the first college in the United States to partner with SEIS. Students who successfully complete their degree program receive a diploma from The State University of New York.

“I am pleased that SEIS and SUNY Morrisville can partner together to offer international students a path to a four-year degree in the United States,” said David E. Rogers, president of SUNY Morrisville. “The exchange between our institutions and cultures is an enriching opportunity for all of us to strengthen our understanding of one another in a global economy.”

Through the agreement, SEIS students begin courses at Beijing Foreign Studies University, and at the same time, take courses online at SUNY Morrisville for a hybrid learning experience.

In the second year, SEIS students reside and study on the SUNY Morrisville campus where they complete their associate degree in the college’s business administration or journalism program.
