Herkimer College Alerts

Important COVID-19 vaccination and surveillance testing information is available here.


  • Herkimer College will waive tuition for College Now courses for the next academic year.

  • Please be aware that if you have a prior tuition balance for a College Now class, the balance must be paid in full before registering for the next academic year.

  • Students may take more than 11 credits per semester. However, there is an application process for students to take more than 11 credits. Please speak with your guidance counselor to learn more about the Course Overload process.

  • The deadlines for adding, dropping, and withdrawing from a course are provided at the start of each semester. If you want to drop a course, you need to complete a Herkimer College Drop/Add form with your counselor. It is not enough to drop the course from your high school schedule; you must drop it with Herkimer College. If you do not, you will earn an “F.” 

    Drop/Add forms should be sent to:

    Herkimer College
    College Now Office
    100 Reservoir Road
    Herkimer, NY 13350

  • Under Open SUNY, your Herkimer College credits will transfer to another SUNY school if the earned grade is a C or better, but how they are applied is up to the individual college or university. For schools outside the SUNY system, it is up to them if they accept the credits. We encourage students to contact the schools they are interested in attending and ask them their transfer policy.
