Why Start at Herkimer?
Our AA and AS degrees are designed to parallel freshman and sophomore classes at senior institutions. Class sizes are typically smaller than those at four-year institutions and personal attention from faculty help build a foundation for success.. Tuition is less expensive than SUNY four year institutions and a fraction of the cost of most private colleges and universities. In addition, students are eligible to earn transfer scholarships and may keep a part-time job in the local community. Students uncertain about majors or career directions, discover that HCCC provides an excellent opportunity to explore different options before committing to a bachelor’s level program.
