Tompkins Cortland is a leader in online education, so you get a robust online experience with faculty who have been doing this for years. It's flexible, so it's fits your schedule. It's affordable because we're a community college.
For fully online classes, even out-of-state students pay only the “resident” tuition of $204 per credit hour. In-state students must still provide a Certificate of Residence.
We offer a host of fully online programs, along with many that can be completed nearly entirely online. For students who want a mix of traditional in-class experiences and online, we do that too.
