Why Herkimer College:  As a proud graduate of Herkimer College, I’m thrilled to work with prospective students who are considering this great College. Herkimer College offers AAS, AA, AS, certificate degrees and transfer opportunities with four-year SUNY Colleges and other private universities. You can attend Herkimer College and then transfer to complete your Bachelor’s degree, which many of our students do. Herkimer College offers small classes, dedicated faculty and staff, residential housing close to our dining services, strong academic programs, and outstanding athletic teams. I believe that Herkimer has something to offer every student and I’m happy to help you realize why Herkimer College is the right fit!

Advice for Herkimer College Applicants: Ask questions. You can always reach out to our dedicated admissions staff with any questions that you may have. I also encourage you to visit our beautiful campus by attending one of our open houses or by setting up a campus visit to tour the campus and speak with an admissions assistant. I’m excited to connect with you at your high school or college fair. Make sure to reach out to me so we can discuss the admissions process and all that Herkimer has to offer.

Why Herkimer College:  Herkimer College truly is a very friendly place where people really care about you as a person. Faculty and staff want you to succeed, and students tell us all the time they wish we were a four year school! With everything a four-year college has to offer, I think Herkimer is a great place to start your education or earn a degree to advance your career. 

Advice for Herkimer College Applicants:  Campus visits are extremely important. Check it all out – the classrooms, the students, majors, student activities, athletics, the faculty and staff.  Don’t stop at just the campus itself either; check out the local area. It’s all about finding a place you feel comfortable and where you can thrive. There are so many options and each college has a different vibe and feel. Shop around, explore your options and make an informed decision. I’m pretty biased, but I do think Herkimer is a great college town and the College itself is a great fit for so many students!
