ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - New York’s public university system is giving campuses in the state’s North Country $4.6 million for programs to improve college completion rates.

State University of New York Chancellor Nancy Zimpher says $1.8 million will go to SUNY Adirondack for three projects, including creation of a student success center and development of a web-based tool to help students plan college from application to graduation.

Clinton Community College will receive $470,000 to connect public high school students in the region with nearby SUNY colleges. SUNY Plattsburgh will get $1 million to lead a program that will encourage students who’ve withdrawn from college to return. SUNY Potsdam is in line for $750,000 to establish SUNY’s first Center for Applied Learning.

The grants from SUNY’s Investment and Performance fund were announced Thursday.
