A Collaborative Approach to Earning Your Degree
SUNY Empire State College develops partnerships that provide educational opportunities to employees, members, and students of partnering organizations. We look for opportunities to address partners’ needs while providing access to innovative, flexible and quality academic programs that empower people and strengthen communities. SUNY Empire empowers students to complete their degrees entirely online, in person, or a combination of both — so students can prepare for their next step without missing a step.
The following partnerships are administered through the Office of Partnerships:
