Program Overview

Alfred University, in collaboration with Corning Community College, is offering bachelor’s degree completion programs in early childhood/childhood education, business administration, criminal justice, and psychology. These programs have classes that primarily meet on the CCC Spencer Hill Main Campus and are designed for students who are unable to attend traditional residential colleges due to everyday life circumstances such as work, family, or the inability to relocate. To accommodate students in these circumstances, classes meet on weeknights or Saturdays. Hybrid courses (a combination of direct contact class meetings and online class meetings) are incorporated into the curriculum to allow students to complete the program within 2 calendar years, providing a student follows the established sequence for a particular major.

Financial Aid

Financial aid is available by applying for state and federal financial aid through the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Students qualify for full-time financial aid if they are registered for a minimum of 12 credits per semester. Degree completion students are not eligible for merit based scholarships or Alfred University based financial aid.
