If you are looking for an excellent college education that will prepare you for a purposeful life of achievement, leadership and service, you will find it at St. Joseph's College. U.S. News & World Report lists St. Joseph's among the top 20 comprehensive colleges in the North. We are accredited by the Middle States Commission on Higher Education and take pride in our national reputation for quality academics. What’s more, we are consistently ranked as one of New York’s most affordable private colleges.

In addition to quality and affordability, we offer our students — traditional undergraduates, graduate students and returning adults — experiences that they treasure for a lifetime. Our students aspire to contribute their best to the world, and they work hard to prepare themselves to engage positively and productively in their personal and professional lives. Along with a dedication to learning, they bring camaraderie, enthusiasm and good humor.

    "Knowing St. Joseph’s is part of a Catholic education is what brought me here, because I went to a Catholic high school and wanted to continue in that tradition while earning my degree."

    "As a freshman applicant, SJC gave me the special attention that 10 other schools didn’t. What set this school apart for me was its Shadow Day. I came as a high school student and shadowed behind a college student and saw how this College operates on a day-to-day basis. This school actually took the time and prepared for my shadow day, where other schools’ shadow days just put in my classes that were nowhere near my major."

    "For the honor society here at SJC you get noticed for your motivation. A lot of kids have 4.0s, 3.9s, but SJC’s honor society is based on what motivation your professors see in you. And I know that at a bigger school they wouldn’t have known that I was this motivated."
