Message from the President

Welcome to SUNY Empire State College.

Merodie Hancock

As a working adult, you have competing priorities – from balancing career and family to active participation in community organizations and hobbies. If you’re visiting our website, it’s likely you want to fit earning a college degree into the mix.

We’re glad you’re here. We can help.

SUNY Empire State College is a college built around your life. We understand your needs as an adult learner, and we’ll help you reach your educational and career goals while managing your busy life. In fact, we helped pioneer non-traditional and distance learning, and we remain at the forefront today.

Whether you take your courses online, onsite at one of 35 locations statewide, or a mix of both, you choose how and when you learn. You also have options to study full-time or part-time.

Our cutting-edge technology and course delivery methods mean you can earn your SUNY Empire degree regardless of where you live or when you work. Our faculty is committed to adult learners, and your faculty mentor will guide you through your degree program from start to finish.

In addition, our generous transfer credit and credit for college-level, on-the-job experience save you time and money and make the most of what you already know.

If you’re looking to advance your career, change careers or attain your dream of earning a college degree, I hope you’ll take some time to explore SUNY Empire State College. I’m confident that when you do, you’ll not only see possibility and opportunity, but you’ll also see yourself here.

To your success,

Dr. Merodie A. Hancock
