Online Learning

SUNY Adirondack’s web-based courses allow you to learn any time and any place you have a computer and the Internet.

With diverse courses available during fall, spring and summer terms, online learning is a convenient way to work toward a degree or pursue personal enrichment.

Online courses start and end with the regular semester calendar. Just as in classroom-based courses, online courses have reading and homework assignments with deadlines.

SUNY Adirondack offers five degrees and a certificate program fully online.

Twenty degree programs offer at least half of required courses online.

Our online courses are delivered through Brightspace, our Digital Learning Environment (DLE).

"I decided that SUNY Adirondack was the right fit for my new life. I was now a full-time, working mother and student ... I decided to take online classes here, and it gave me the opportunity to work a 9-to-5 job. Dropping out was not an option for me, and SUNY Adirondack made it so that a degree was always within reach."
