Established in 1946 to help train and educate veterans, Mohawk Valley Community College has evolved to become New York State’s first community college, the largest college between Syracuse and Albany, and the region’s primary provider of college education and non-credit training.
Mohawk Valley Community College spans two campuses – one in Utica and another in Rome – offers 90 degree and certificate options for its enrollment of 6,000 full- and part-time students. MVCC also serves another 6,000 people through its corporate and community education programs, and its campuses welcome more than 50,000 people annually for community events.
MVCC’s tuition, the tenth lowest in the SUNY system, along with a robust scholarship program and services including a campus-to-campus direct shuttle help make the College accessible for everyone.
There are 22 intercollegiate athletic programs and more than 50 student clubs and organizations, providing students with a variety of activities to express themselves and explore their options.
The Rome Campus offers eight unique programs, including several hospitality programs, Surgical Technology, and the Airframe and Powerplant Technology program, which also operates at the Griffiss Business and Technology Park where students receive practical hands-on training on such aircraft as the Boeing 727-100 and Gulfstream V. The Rome Campus is currently the site of a 48,000-square-foot renovation and construction project.
MVCC and its partners in the community also collaborate to offer programs in the region’s neighborhoods, such as thINCubator and an Educational Opportunity Center.
