SUNY Ulster Named One of 2018 Most Affordable Online Colleges in the Nation

For Associate in Computer Science Degree

In the 2018 list of Most Affordable Online Colleges in the nation for an Associate in Computer Science, SUNY Ulster ranked in the top 15 according to OnlineU, a free guide for comparing online degree options throughout the country. SUNY Ulster is the only New York community college to receive a place on this list and was one of only fourteen to have an annual tuition rate under $10,000 for this online degree program. The rankings are based on annual cost of tuition for out-of-state students, which OnlineU researches and compiles from the official college website for the previous academic year.

John Sheehan, Coordinator of the Computer Science program at SUNY Ulster says, “Studies have shown that by 2020 there will be over 1.4 million jobs in computing and only 400,000 computer science graduates available to fill them. Our affordable tuition helps to bring this valuable educational opportunity within the reach of anyone interested in obtaining a high paying career in software development.”

SUNY Ulster’s online computer science program is offered entirely online and encompasses the same content as the standard, on-campus computer science degree program. Upon completion, students in the program have sufficient knowledge to become JAVA programmers. The program is designed for seamless transfer to a four-year program or entry into the workplace upon graduation. To learn more, visit
