Individualized learning programs and distance education courses are some of the options Empire State College offers its predominantly adult student-body.
Located in Saratoga Springs, New York, Empire State has learning centers throughout upstate New York and the New York metropolitan area as well as online to better serve the primary population it serves: the adult learner.
Bachelor’s, associate’s and master’s degrees are offered in the Arts, Sciences, Education, Business, Nursing and Human Services, among others.
In order to best serve the adult learner and the varied interests and experiences they bring to the table, Empire State also offers a number of interdisciplinary study and independent study programs as well.
A comprehensive student center supports students in all aspects of their education, from assessment to academic and career planning.

Students whose grades fall below average may, however, still have the chance to be admitted by simply providing an explanation of the circumstances leading up to their low performance.
Financial aid is available to qualifying students through loans, grants and other sources. Additionally, unemployed workers and low-income students may apply for special consideration and assistance.
100% of students gave SUNY Empire State College 4 stars overall.
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.
