Academic Life

With more than 80 bachelor and associate degree programs to choose from, you’re sure to find a career that suits you at Morrisville State College. The college offers the following degrees: Bachelor of Science (B.S.), Bachelor of Technology (B.Tech.), Bachelor of Business Administration (B.B.A.), Associate of Science (A.S.), Associate of Applied Science (A.A.S.), Associate of Arts (A.A.) and Associate of Occupational Studies (A.O.S.). At Morrisville State College we believe that true mastery of a subject comes from the practical application of theory. Some people call it experiential learning, but for us, it is just common sense. We know that when our students graduate, their future employers are more likely to be interested in what they can do, rather than what they have read. We feel it is our mission to prepare our students to be ready to seek out a job in their field of study, and to hit the ground running when they land that job. With that in mind, we have structured our curriculums in a way that finds a balance between instruction and hands-on learning, and for many of our students, it starts on day one. Morrisville State College students attend class in a “living classroom.” What does this mean? It means that as a student you will be asked by your professor to apply what you have learned from lectures into practice; literally “learning by doing.” Often this is a seamless transition. You might watch your professor demonstrate a lesson, then be instructed to recreate it yourself. We know you can do it. And, after you accomplish the task, you will know you can do it as well. This is the Morrisville way, and we think you will like it. Are you a budding entrepreneur with an idea for a new condiment that everyone will have to have in their kitchen? You could take that idea from concept to the retail shelf through our unique combination of business incubator, food product processing facility and hands-on academic classroom, Nelson Farms. Are you a horse-lover who finds him/herself most at peace in an equine barn? Well, there is no shortage of horses at Morrisville that will rely on you for their daily care, from riding and stabling, to conditioning and rehabilitating. Care to BYOB? We mean, do you dream of “being your own boss”? If you have the desire to run your own business and create jobs in your community, we can give you the “entrepreneur’s toolbox” to reach your goals. We want you to learn by building critical thinking skills and solving real-world problems, the same ones you will encounter when you are working in your field. It is our belief that by giving you the experience of doing, the classroom experience will be transformed into something that is interactive, ever changing, and inspires you to learn. That is Morrisville’s “living classroom”.

Campus Life

Situated in beautiful Central New York, the Morrisville State College campus is a picture-perfect setting to enjoy all four seasons. With 185 acres, the main campus includes more than 50 buildings, multiple athletic fields and an additional 565 acres of farm and woodlands. The Morrisville campus has 12 residence halls which house approximately 1,800 students. Special arrangements include coed residence halls, partitioned double and triple rooms and quiet-study residence halls. Safe and conveniently located off-campus housing is available through the Morrisville Auxiliary Corporation. Morrisville Commons I and II feature apartment-style suites equipped with air conditioning, cable, internet access, laundry facilities and on-site parking. Morrisville Commons houses approximately 429 students. Room and board includes the college’s cell phone program, cable television and use of laundry facilities. Meals and snacks are available at any time through many dining options. The college’s award-winning dining hall features an ever-changing and diverse menu. The dining hall also serves student-produced products including vegetables grown on campus, and Molly’s Choice ice cream. For those at a sporting event, or those who don’t have time to sit down to eat, there are several grab-and-go dining options as well.

Facilities and Resources

The college has a variety of unique laboratories: an Aquaculture Center with tanks, raceways, ponds, a hatchery; a fully functional freestall dairy farm; a high-tech Automotive Technology Building; an Equine Center with harness racing track, breeding and training facility, three indoor riding arenas and brand new equine rehabilitation center; ; a wood technology laboratory with kilns and sawmill; a plastic-injection molding laboratory; a live gaming and casino management laboratory; a small-scale food processing plant (Nelson Farms); and a student-operated travel agency and restaurant, The Copper Turret, a high-tech culinary classroom utilized by the college’s hospitality students.

Morrisville integrates technology into all aspects of campus life—from the classroom to the social scene. Students in most curricula use IBM ThinkPad laptop computers, both in and outside the classroom. Wireless laptops provide remote access capabilities, international research opportunities, direct access to the college library and its holdings, access to public databases and electronic communication capabilities. An on-campus Help Desk, staffed with knowledgeable professionals, assists students with laptop hardware or software problems. Students now also receive an iPad mini as part of their laptop package.

For many students, balancing academic and social interests can be a challenge. The college has several support mechanisms, including an Academic Enrichment Center, Student Health Center and Career Placement Office. Dedicated staff help ensure our students’ time at Morrisville is productive. Through the Morrisville State College Co-Curricular Transcript, students are encouraged to participate in community service projects, internships, student organizations, athletic events, and other leadership opportunities to enhance the academic experience while gaining real-world experience and learning to strike that balance between work and social life. Morrisville also offers an Educational Opportunity Program designed to open the doors of academic success to students who display the potential to succeed in college but have had academic or financial issues that make achieving a degree more difficult.

Athletics / Sports

Morrisville State College offers a dynamic intercollegiate and intramural athletics program. With several teams to choose from, students have variety when it comes to playing a sport, either competitively or just for fun. A multipurpose stadium is also used for intramural events and has become an immense resource for the community and area high school athletic teams looking for a synthetic turf facility. Morrisville State College has excellent on-campus athletic facilities for all students, including an indoor recreation center, two gymnasiums, twin ice rinks, fitness center, tennis courts, basketball courts and several athletic fields.

Financial Aid / Tuition

Students at Morrisville State College will receive an affordable education, regardless of financial circumstances. Through a variety of grant, scholarship, work and loan programs, students can receive assistance to fill the gap between the total cost of education and what their family can afford to pay. Morrisville State College uses the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) to determine financial aid eligibility and rewards outstanding academic achievement through its Academic Merit Scholarship programs. Both need- and merit-based scholarships are available to academically qualified students through the Morrisville College Foundation. The college awards Presidential Scholarships of up to $32,000 throughout four years to top students who apply early and meet the appropriate academic criteria.

Students transferring into a baccalaureate degree program at Morrisville State College may apply for a $3,000 annual award for a maximum of two years. Criteria include the completion of an associate degree and at least a 3.0 cumulative grade point average.


Students are admitted to specific academic programs rather than to a general freshman program.  Credentials are evaluated on an individual basis and admission is granted to those with the potential for success in the curriculum of their choice.  Candidates must be high school graduates or equivalent with grades acceptable to the major to which admission is sought.  High school transcripts, any college transcript and a 250-word essay are required.  SAT/ACT examinations are required for applicants to all bachelor and select associate degrees.  A letter of recommendation is strongly encouraged.  Evaluation of applications is conducted on a rolling basis.  High school preparation requirements vary by curriculum.  Acceptance is on a space-available basis, and some programs may close throughout the year.
