Students can earn a State University of New York bachelor’s degree through Empire State College (ESC) by doing independent study at Cayuga’s Auburn campus. Cayuga’s students can plan an ESC bachelor’s degree in coordination with their 91 associate’s degree.

Empire State College is a fully accredited college of the State University of New York, offering bachelor’s degrees in most academic areas as well as master’s programs in business, labor, social policy and liberal arts. Students design their own programs, studying at a convenient pace, one-to-one with SUNY ESC faculty in Auburn. Credit may also be awarded for learning acquired from non-classroom experience. Year-round admissions are available.
