SUNY Power

The State University of New York is the largest comprehensive university system in the United States, and SUNY is reinventing the role of public higher education in America.

With 64 campuses and over 7,000 academic programs, SUNY’s reach extends far beyond classroom walls. With program offerings at the associate, bachelor's, master's, doctoral and certificate levels in subjects from accounting to zoology, every student can find and follow their unique passion at SUNY. The most affordable path, of course, is to start at a community college, like Corning, and then transfer.

SUNY believes higher education is not just for the fortunate; rather it is a necessity in today’s changing economy. SUNY programs are not only affordable, they are taught by respected scholars who are also talented practitioners in their chosen fields.

SUNY graduates have been giving back and transforming the lives of local and global citizens (and current SUNY students) for more than 65 years. Millions of SUNY alumni are working in their communities every day, changing and improving the world with exceptional contributions—whether defined as a medical breakthrough, a technological innovation, an inspirational piece of art, the birth of a new business, or an internship for an aspiring professional.

There are 3 million SUNY graduates spread throughout the world. They are doctors and lawyers, famous actors and singers. They hold national and international public office. They grow our food and they teach future generations of our citizens.

This is the SUNY network – people who are proud of the education they received from SUNY and who are eager to help those who follow in their SUNY footsteps succeed in the professional community.
