Convenient Study Options + Flexible Schedules

Learning is an activity, not a location.

That’s why more than 12,000 students have earned their online degree at SUNY Empire.

  • Courses your way. Online, onsite…or both. Learn from home, one of our locations across New York state, the office, a military base…or wherever you happen to be.
  • Flexible schedule. Sure, you’ll have due dates, but you’ll also determine the schedule that gets you from start to finish—before work, after work, weekends…whatever works for you.
  • Speed/time to degree. We award credit where it’s due. That means generous transfer credit options, as well as credit for prior college-level learning gained outside a classroom, saving you time and money.
