Utica College Joins SAGE Tuition RewardsUtica College, which has received a record number of freshman applications for each of the past three years, is the 27th New York private college member of the SAGE Tuition Rewards Enrollment Consortium. 5,463 high students applied for admission for UC's current freshman class.

Founded in 1946 in Central New York state as an affiliate of Syracuse University, Utica has grown into an independent, vibrant, comprehensive college offering more than 70 academic programs, adding new majors in fast-growing fields such as cybersecurity, construction management and health studies.

Offering the advantages of a large university with the intimacy and personal attention associated with smaller private colleges, Utica enrolls 2,528 diverse undergraduate students. It boasts an 11:1 student-to-faculty ratio. 61% of classes have 20 students or fewer. Utica offers participation possibilities in 24 NCAA Division III varsity sports.

A recent tuition "reset" has driven the list price to an affordable $20,127. Applicants who live more than five hours' driving distance from Utica can book a flight into Syracuse (about an hour from campus) or Albany (90 minutes away) and be reimbursed for half the ticket price (up to a total of $150). Those who enroll are eligible for reimbursement of the remainder of the ticket price (up to $300).

UC ranks in the top third nationally for graduates who exceed their expected earning potential, according to The Economist. 92 percent of UC grads are employed or in graduate school within one year of graduation.
