Education Within Reach

A college degree has never been more important—yet, to many, seemingly out of reach. Columbia-Greene has been closing that gap with affordable, accessible education since 1969.

Make the Connection

Small classes bring out the “community” in the College’s name. An 18:1 student-to-faculty ratio means students can connect with faculty. And gain the support necessary to succeed.

Make Every Day Count

Columbia-Greene’s 144-acre campus is less than one mile from the Rip Van Winkle Bridge, a gateway to hiking, skiing, or just enjoying the majesty of the Catskill Mountains. New York City is just two hours away by train from Hudson to Penn Station seven days a week.

Serving Students. Serving the Community.

A Columbia-Greene education provides the springboard to a promising future. For more than 50 years, the College has inspired and motivated thousands of learners who want to continue their education at a four-year college or university and provided relevant skills training for those seeking to enter the workforce.
