Yellow Ribbon Program
Hartwick College is a proud participant in the Yellow Ribbon Program, a provision of the Post-9/11 Veterans Educational Assistance Act of 2008, touted as the greatest investment in veterans since World War II.
Small classes (18 students average), close interaction with and personal attention from faculty (11:1 student:faculty ratio), a friendly and caring community, and 30 courses of study from which to choose make Hartwick a perfect choice to pursue an education through the unique opportunity of the Yellow Ribbon Program.
Three-Year Degree Program
Hartwick is one of just a few colleges in the country that offer a three-year degree program without having to do summer or online coursework. By pursuing a larger course load in each of six semesters, taking a course for credit each January Term, and working closely with special program advisors to stay on track—plus your own motivation and willingness to work hard—it is possible to complete your degree in three years.
