  • We offer more than two dozen transfer and career programs customized to serve students here in our region, New York State and beyond.
  • We are part of the SUNY (State University of New York) system, which opens up a myriad of transfer pathways for our students.
  • Our students enjoy faculty who are easily accessible, well-trained in their field of study, and make connections beyond the classroom. They're not just your instructors. Our faculty take pride in guiding and advising students on how to get the most of their experience at North Country.
  • Applied learning is at the center of many of our programs. Whether it's in a clinical setting, internship or classroom instruction, our students learn by doing. As a result, they are better prepared to move into the workforce or a baccalaureate experience.
  • Affordability! The quality of your educational experience at North Country is high and, compared to private and four-year colleges, it's also a bargain. If you're concerned about being able to pay for college, save money and get your start at North Country.
