My Survey to Success

Resource Center

All new students are asked to complete the My Survey to Success, which lets us know what type of information and resources you may need in order to get off to a great start in college. If you have already completed the survey, Thank You! Below you will find links to several resources that correlate to some of the questions on the survey. For other items on the survey, you may be contacted directly by a particular office.

If you are a new student and you have not yet completed the survey, please do so now. It should take you no more than 5 minutes. To access the survey, go to Starfish. You will need to log in to the MySCCC portal to access Starfish. Please contact Academic Advising for assistance.


SUNY Schenectady, through a US Department of Education Title III grant, is able to loan laptops to students to ensure full access to their coursework. To request a laptop, please complete the Laptop Loan Request form. Once a determination has been made you will be notified, and if appropriate, where and when the laptop can be picked up.
