A-List Ranking

Something that sets SUNY Cobleskill
College of Agriculture and
Technology apart from other larger schools
is its small-school
mentality. The undergraduates currently
number 2,619. This is not a
negative aspect of the school, but a
positive one! The small classes
offer more of the one-on-one help that so
many students need in order
to succeed. SUNY Cobleskill is committed
to providing students with this
relational aspect of going to class where
the professor is more than
simply the person standing at the front of
the room. They provide more
of a hands-on approach through their
courses that is not often seen at
the college level.

of Agriculture and
Technology, you should know that there is

institution that is best for you.

Online Degrees

If traditional education is not for you
due to responsibilities at home
with family, then you might want to
consider taking online courses.
SUNY Cobleskill offers a wide range of
courses that can be completed

completed at a much lower cost than if you

is definitely something to consider even
as you choose a school for
online education.
