The Student Achievement Measure is supported by six sponsoring associations, working together to provide a more comprehensive and accurate picture of student progress and completion as students move across institutions and state boundaries.

SUNY College of Technology at Alfred

Alfred State, SUNY College of Technology began as a state school of agriculture in 1908 and was incorporated into the newly organized State University of New York (SUNY) in 1948. SUNY is the largest comprehensive university system in the United States. Alfred State is in the college of technology sector within SUNY and offers a distinct blend of quality two- and four-year degree programs. Fifty associate degree programs allow for a variety of concentrations in the fields of architecture, business, health, applied and engineering technologies, and the liberal arts and sciences. Nineteen baccalaureate-degree programs in business, health, human services, and engineering technologies have been designed to meet industry needs and student expectations. Alfred State is located in Allegany County, a county in the Southern Tier of New York State. The College includes two campuses – one located in the Village of Alfred and the second located approximately 15 miles from Alfred in Wellsville. The 260-acre Alfred Campus is centered on an “academic core” of buildings that houses classrooms, lab facilities, faculty offices, and student services. Surrounding the academic structures are 13 residence halls and a townhouse complex that was completed in 2007. The College also includes an 800-acre farm and Motorsports and Veterinary Technology Center off campus in the Village of Alfred. The School of Applied Technology consists of more than 20 buildings on a 21-acre campus in Wellsville. Emphasizing the development of skills pertinent to a specific field, the School of Applied Technology offers the associate degree in occupational studies (AOS). Residential students live on the Alfred campus and free transportation is provided to Wellsville each day. The Wellsville campus, established in 1966, is owned by the Educational Foundation of Alfred, Inc. and leased to the College. The Educational Foundation is a private foundation representing faculty, staff, and friends of Alfred State dedicated to improving the AS community through support of educational programs. The Educational Foundation provides monetary support to enhance learning opportunities for students through scholarships, work grants, and academic club activities. Plans are now underway to construct a new Sustainable Advanced Manufacturing Center (SAMC) to house welding and machine tool programs. SAMC is being funded by a SUNY 2020 grant and will be the first facility built by the State on the Wellsville campus. The College serves approximately 3,661 students. Known primarily as a regional college, Alfred State increasingly attracts students from other states and countries to its many specialized programs. Project-based learning is a cornerstone of the Alfred State culture. Industry demand and student interest in sustainability enhances the project-based approach. Sustainability projects include a rigorous recycling and waste management campaign, program offerings that lead to careers in “green technologies,” the establishment of the Center for Organic and Sustainable Agriculture and the Center for Renewable Energy, the building of the Zero Energy Green Home as a hands-on learning laboratory, and the planting of a Community Garden. High levels of student and faculty civic engagement opportunities provide further reason to embrace project-based learning. Evidence that Alfred State graduates are able to hit the ground running® can be found in the “Highlights” section of the 2013 Employment and Placement Report indicating that 99% either found jobs or went on to pursue four-year degrees. Of those students entering the workforce, 91% obtained jobs in their chosen field.
