*The above-mentioned sub-national secretariat is authorized to manage accredited universities/institutions located within New York State. UMAP Member Institutions will be able to receive students from all 64 colleges and universities within the SUNY system. Students from UMAP Member Institutions who want to study abroad in New York State will have the opportunity to study at the College of Brockport for a semester or a full year.
Because New York is the only state with a sub-national secretariat in the United States, US universities/institutions located in states other than New York are not eligible to participate in UMAP programs until a sub-national secretariat is established in their state.
