SUNY College of Technology at Alfred (Alfred State) had its beginning as a state school of agriculture in 1908 when it was created by an act of the state legislature. An important milestone in the history of the college occurred in 1948 when it was incorporated into the newly organized State University of New York (SUNY) system. In 1951, the college was authorized by SUNY to award the degree of Associate in Applied Science. The Associate in Arts and the Associate in Science degrees were authorized in 1967, and the Associate in Occupational Studies was approved in 1973. Bachelor's degrees were added to the college’s offerings in 1991. Alfred State, a residential college of technology, provides career-focused education enriched by the liberal arts. With more than 70 dynamic majors—offering engaging course work in both traditional classrooms and the real world—Alfred State provides students with unparalleled preparation. Alfred State offers several undergraduate degrees and certificates in both traditional formats and entirely online.
