Achieving Academic Excellence

The Association of Proprietary Colleges (APC) represents New York’s degree-granting proprietary colleges – one of the state’s four sectors of higher education. Like all state colleges, New York’s degree-granting proprietary colleges are governed by the state’s Board of Regents. APC member colleges maintain above-average student outcomes, serving more than 35,000 students. Offering associate, bachelor’s, master’s and doctoral degrees in numerous traditional and emerging fields, program completion rates across APC member colleges are strong.

We warmly and enthusiastically congratulate the thousands of students across our member colleges who have successfully completed their Bachelors, Associate, Masters or Certificate programs and will have the pride and privilege of donning the cap and gown this month.
