Please note that as of December 23, 2016, the Utica School of Commerce (USC) will be ending its 120-year-long history of education in the Mohawk Valley.
While college attendance in upstate New York hit a high from 2009-2010, like many other bricks-and-mortar educational institutions, USC has sustained significant drops in enrollment since that time and no longer have the student base to continue academic operations.
Over the years we have strived to develop great programs, countless career opportunities for our graduates, expert staff, and a superior administrative team. Unfortunately, even with our online program offerings, we have reached a point where the number of students can no longer support our sustainability. While it will no doubt take a very long time to digest this devastating fact, our current focus remains on the smooth transition and success of our current students, faculty, and staff.
Current students will have many options:
USC has a formal agreement with Bryant and Stratton College that ensures each student the opportunity to complete their program of study;
USC will host "Transfer Days" in both Utica and Canastota where students will be able to speak with local colleges to identify transfer opportunities;
For those students who are scheduled to graduate in May, transfer courses will be arranged and graduates will receive a USC degree or certificate.
