Celebrating Excellence: The Annual Nursing Pinning Ceremony at SUNY FMCC
Celebrating Excellence: The Annual Nursing Pinning Ceremony at SUNY FMCC
When: May 14, 2024

Scheduled for May 14, 2024, this event marks a significant milestone in the lives of our 30 graduating nursing students as they transition from their educational journey to the noble calling of nursing.

The nursing pinning ceremony at SUNY FMCC holds profound significance, rooted in centuries-old traditions. It symbolizes the official welcoming of new nurses into the profession and serves as a rite of passage, recognizing their readiness to embrace the challenges and responsibilities that come with caring for others during moments of vulnerability.

"As nursing instructors at SUNY FMCC, we have had the privilege of witnessing the growth and transformation of these students firsthand. Throughout their rigorous training, they have demonstrated not only academic excellence but also compassion, resilience, and a profound commitment to serving others. Now, as they prepare to embark on their professional careers, we stand alongside them, proud mentors honoring their achievements and cheering them on as they take their place among the ranks of healthcare providers". 

The pinning ceremony at SUNY FMCC is a time-honored tradition that symbolizes the bond shared among nurses, past, present, and future. Each student will receive a nursing pin, a tangible emblem of their entry into the nursing profession, and a reminder of the values and principles that guide their practice. The ceremony will include special rituals, speeches, and reflections, all designed to inspire and uplift our graduates as they embark on this new chapter of their lives.

To our graduating nursing students at SUNY FMCC, we offer our heartfelt congratulations. Your journey has been marked by countless sacrifices, late nights of studying, and moments of self-doubt, but through it all, you have persevered with grace and determination. As you prepare to don your nursing uniform and step into the world of healthcare, may you carry with you the knowledge, skills, and compassion that define this noble profession.
We invite family members, friends, faculty, and staff to join us in celebrating the achievements of our graduating nursing students at SUNY FMCC's Annual Nursing Pinning Ceremony. Together, let us honor their dedication, applaud their accomplishments, and wish them every success in their future endeavors as they continue to make a difference in the lives of those they serve.

Receiving College Credit

SUNY FMCC offers a variety of ways to earn college credit towards your degree. Many students have accumulated credit from other sources prior to enrolling at SUNY FMCC. You can also earn credit based on your life experiences and by examination.


Ask the college you previously attended to send an official transcript to our Registrar’s Office. Courses eligible for transfer must be from a regionally accredited college and must carry a grade of “C” or better. This includes college classes while in high school sponsored by colleges other than SUNY FMCC.


SUNY FMCC has written articulation agreements with Career and Technical centers such as the HFM BOCES or other secondary schools that enable students to receive college credits for classes taken while in high school. Contact your high school guidance office or technical teacher to request an articulation validation application.


Students seeking credit for military education and training must request an official record of their military education be sent directly to our Registrar’s Office. Examples of military education transcripts include the AARTS, SMART or CCAF transcripts. The credit equivalencies recommended by the American Council on Education will be considered; however, SUNY FMCC will make the final determination of transferability.


Life Experience or Experiential Learning Credit may be awarded for non-collegiate life experience that is educationally relevant and is equivalent to course content according to specific criteria. Students are responsible for documenting the experience and will work with the appropriate academic department for further information no later than mid-term of the semester prior to the one in which credit is to be granted.


Credit may be granted for a passing score on externally administered examinations including but not limited to Advanced Placement (AP) or College Level Examination Program (CLEP). You must arrange for an official score report to be sent to our Registrar’s Office from the testing agency that administered the exam. An AP score of 3 or higher generally is eligible for credit.

Transfer Appeal Process

When you transfer into any SUNY school you will receive a transcript evaluation as close to the time of admission as possible and will receive written information about the credits that were accepted for transfer. If you disagree with your credit evaluation, you have a right to submit an appeal. To do so, simply contact the Student Development Center at (518)736-3622 x8104 to schedule an appointment with an advisor.

If we need additional information about the course, you will be asked to obtain a course description or syllabus before a new evaluation can be completed. You will receive a new evaluation as soon as possible after we have received the necessary documentation to reevaluate your transcript.

Additional SUNY System Information

If you still do not agree with the college’s decision regarding the granting or placement of credit that you earned at a prior SUNY institution, or you have not received a response in 15 business days, you may appeal to the SUNY System Provost. You can submit the appeal by filling out the student appeal form at
