Flexible approaches to learning that suit your schedule and needs.
At SUNY Empire, we understand that our busy students need options for engaging in their education. SUNY Empire students can study in many ways, and what works for you in one term, or for one class, might change in the future. We're committed to helping you find a way to learn that makes sense for where you are right now, and where you want to be in the future. Whether you prefer online instruction, in-person instruction, or a blend of both, we have courses and degree programs that meet your unique needs.
