The Alfred Advantage

At Alfred University, you won’t spend all your time behind a desk. Our curriculum is designed around experiential learning, which means you'll have as much hands-on learning as possible. Depending on your major, you’ll find opportunities to be in the field, the studio, the lab, the classroom, or engaging in simulated scenarios that give you a competitive edge when you enter the workforce or head to grad school. You’ll learn the concepts and then actively apply them through projects, field trips, site visits, internships, and interactions with professionals in the field
Alfred University is placing a renewed emphasis on its 4+1 MBA program, which will meet the demands of a marketplace that requires students graduate with a comprehensive list of skills needed to thrive in today’s dynamic economy. Read more about this opportunity.
Are you interested in med school? Being a dentist or Pharmacist? Alfred University has an affiliation agreement with Lake Erie College of Osteopathic Medicine (LECOM), which allows Alfred University students to apply to LECOM’s Early Acceptance Program (EAP) in three graduate tracks: osteopathic medicine, dentistry and pharmacy.
Our faculty and staff are respected not only for their knowledge and skills, but also because they care about you as an individual. They serve as true mentors, offering personalized attention through small class sizes, a student-faculty ratio of 13:1, and by working closely with you as advisors. They take the time to welcome you to the AU community, watch you grow as a leader and scholar, and help you connect with alumni and other experts.
More than 98% of Alfred University graduates gain employment or enroll in graduate or professional school within a year of graduation. We’ll sure miss you when you graduate, but we know as a proud Saxon alum, you’ll want to come back to cheer us on at Homecoming or catch up with your favorite professors at Reunion.
