Your Undergraduate Degree Program

There is no hard and fast timeframe for how long it will take to earn your degree, since this depends on how many studies you take at a time and how much credit you can include from credit transfer, exams and prior learning assessment. However, approximately 53 percent of our bachelor’s degree students who enter at an advanced level complete their degrees within three years on a part-time basis; some take as little as a year.

Perhaps you’re not ready to begin a degree program right now. SUNY Empire State College offers nonmatriculated study that allows you to earn college credit.

However you choose to learn, SUNY Empire is dedicated to providing you with the best education in a time-efficient and affordable way.
