Support When and Where You Need It

Think "online" means "on your own"? Not at SUNY Empire. Here, online learning is as active and engaging as you want it to be. We build community into everything we do, so you have opportunities to get involved, build your network and meet new people at every turn.

It starts at orientation, where we connect you to the people and resources you’ll benefit from throughout your degree program. You’ll also learn how to register for and access your courses and meet—virtually or in person—faculty, staff and fellow students. Orientation is your gateway to all that is SUNY Empire, and it sets you up for real student success.

Our support programs are designed to meet your needs as you progress through your degree program and include:

  • Tech support with extended and weekend hours
  • Peer tutoring
  • Extensive online library and librarian assistance
  • Academic skills tutorials
  • Writing resources
  • Career services
  • 24/7 telephone counseling service
  • Free workshops on learning skills, writing college papers, and more

Whatever your interests, our online community is active, supportive and accessible. From participation in peer discussion boards and online office hours to clubs, college-wide conferences, retreats and special student weekends, you’ll connect at SUNY Empire.
