International Distance Learning

Welcome to the International Distance Learning program at Empire State College. Through our Center for Distance Learning, we offer you the opportunity to study at a well-respected American college, part of the State University of New York, from anywhere in the world.

Since childhood I had wanted to get an American college degree. There were many obstacles to overcome in order to pursue this dream and reach the goal. With the help of Empire State College I can now say that my dream has come true. The college's diverse programs and flexible approach to studying convinced me quickly that this is the place to be. In addition, a supportive staff and faculty never let me doubt whether I would make it. Thank you for contributing and helping me achieve this goal.
