It was in the 1960s that the State University of New York Master Plan identified Herkimer County as a potential community college site, a location and a community that showed great promise to support such an important endeavor. Overlooking a small village in Upstate New York, Herkimer College is a two-year unit of the State University of New York, the nation's largest comprehensive system of public higher education. A two-year degree from Herkimer prepares students for jobs or to continue their education at a four-year school.
Herkimer College provides a quality, affordable education with more than 40 degree programs available. Through our Internet Academy, we offer many degree programs and certificate programs entirely online.
