CANTON – SUNY Canton is a smart choice for adult learners according to Abbound’s 2021 Directory of Top Adult Credentials.
College admissions professionals are increasingly recruiting non-traditional students and those who attended college but never graduated. As of fall 2020, 31% of students seeking a degree at SUNY Canton were 24 years of age or older. About 70% of this population study online during a traditional semester.
“Our strength in online programs and flexible learning options are the main factors non-traditional students choose SUNY Canton,” said Melissa J. Evans, Executive Director of Enrollment. “We are also able to accompany people throughout the university application process, whether they have been away for a few months or 10 years.”
Abound selected the college for its accessibility, affordability, acceleration and advancement. The mention of the unranked repertoire has been added to a multitude of other lists denoting the continuing excellence of the college.
The most common programs were offered by the college’s new Center for Criminal Justice, Intelligence and Cyber Security (CJIC). Criminal Justice Degree Hub has ranked SUNY Canton as the third best criminal justice program in New York City. The website is an independent resource dedicated to providing useful and accurate information to those interested in the field.
