About the Internet Academy

Meet the Internet Academy Team

Welcome to the Internet Academy

We proudly offer 20 associate degree programs and 5 one-year certificate programs completely online. Approximately 30 percent of our student body are online students— taking all of their courses through the Internet Academy. And the majority of our on-campus students take at least one online course during their time at Herkimer.

By offering complete degree programs online, you are able to earn a degree without traveling to the campus—a real benefit if you have other responsibilities. Online learning means getting an education when and where is best for you. 

Top-Notch Faculty

Herkimer focuses on offering high-quality instruction. Faculty are required to participate in a series of workshops before they begin teaching online. They regularly “refresh” their courses to keep pace with quality benchmarks for online learning. 

A System of Support

At Herkimer, we pride ourselves on a supportive environment and caring faculty and staff. Our goal is to offer the same level of care and service to online students as we do to on-campus students. All necessary services are accessible online, including registration, placement testing, bill payment, tutoring, book purchasing, and academic advisement.
