Hit the Ground Running
Project-based learning is a cornerstone of our Alfred State culture. When students work on real-world problems, they learn how to think, not what to think. As a result, Alfred State has a 99% employment and transfer rate.
Where do you go from here?
Many of our programs lead to internships with area companies. We also offer job placement services and very active academic advising and counseling. In our most recent placement survey, 99% of our graduates either found jobs or went on to pursue four-year degrees.
91% of those students who entered the workforce got jobs in their chosen field.
Being well-prepared and work-ready gives Alfred State students a significant head start on life and in their professional careers. Employers consistently marvel at how Alfred State graduates are able to hit the ground running ®; making an Alfred State degree worth more in the marketplace.
Cost effective education.
As one of SUNY's premier colleges of technology, we're also known for our financial support that makes our education more affordable. In fact, Alfred State typically costs less than half of many private four-year colleges.
Yet we keep class sizes small.
Our instructors make themselves very available. Many students appreciate the hands-on classroom teamwork experience. Most students report that what they learned here has prepared them to face the challenges of the real world.
