  • SUNY Oneonta Named to Top 100 for 8th year

    Kiplinger’s Personal Finance magazine has named SUNY Oneonta to its list of “100 Best Values in Public Colleges” for the eighth consecutive year. The 2014 rankings, released Dec. 11, recognize four-year schools that deliver academic quality and affordability.

    “SUNY is proud to once again see so many of its campuses ranked favorably by Kiplinger’s Magazine for the top educational value they offer students in New York and around the globe,” said SUNY Chancellor Nancy L. Zimpher. “Congratulations to SUNY Oneonta on this much-deserved recognition, which is a reflection of our commitments to access, quality and affordability.”

  • Online Programs Among Top 10 in NY

    SUNY Oneonta is among the top 10 New York colleges and universities offering online degree programs, according to a new ranking by AffordableCollegesOnline.org (AC Online).

    SUNY Oneonta is No. 7 on the list of the 37 “Most Affordable Online Colleges in New York” compiled by AC Online, a leading resource for college affordability and financial aid information. According to AC Online founder Dan Schuessler, the rankings recognize colleges that offer students “quality, flexibility and affordability.”

    SUNY Oneonta offers five graduate programs with an online component. The college’s master’s degree programs in Literacy Education (B-6) and (5-12) are hybrid programs, delivered partially online and partially in the classroom. The educational technology specialist (K-12 certification) master’s degree program and school counselor Certificate of Advanced Study program are offered completely online.

    In addition, the college’s highly acclaimed nutrition and dietetics graduate program is offered completely online, except for a required internship that can be performed near the student’s home. Graduate student interns who successfully complete this full-time, three-semester, online program earn a master’s in nutrition and dietetics and are eligible to take the national examination to become a registered dietitian.

    "While our residential experience certainly contributes significantly to SUNY Oneonta's reputation as a top-flight college, this ranking acknowledges just how well our online offerings stack up against other schools' programs," said Richard Lee, interim dean of Education and Human Ecology. “It is indeed an honor to have the superb faculty who serve our students recognized for their excellence. We are fortunate to have a critical mass of excellent educators working in this exciting, virtual environment.”
