Student Ratings

Overall Rating

I am both an administrator and a former student at Empire State Colleg. What makes ESC special is that you can design your own degree program. I was able to create a degree program for Instructional Technology befor any other schools offered one. This put me ahead of the curve and I had an excellent education. I now work at ESC because I believe in ESC. So often, in Higher Ed, you here complaints that schools are training students for degrees that might be obsolete when they get out. If you are a visionary, if you know what you want and need to learn in order to achieve your dreams, then ESC is for you.
