Alfred University is a private, four year, liberal arts college founded in 1836. As the second oldest coeducational college in the United States and one of the earliest nineteenth century colleges to have enrolled African American and Native American students, we've been inclusive from the start.
With more than 1,700 undergraduate students and 600 graduate and doctoral candidates, students have the opportunity to create connections with peers and mentors that will last a lifetime. Among our nearly 50 majors across the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, College of Business, School of Engineering, School of Art and Design, and Division of Performing Arts, there's the ability to mix and match different programs to create a truly custom fit education.
An Alfred University education is more than just classroom learning, ours is a maker culture. We promote hands-on learning through applied and experiential learning, undergraduate research, and real world experience like internships and co-ops. Outside the classroom, students have the chance to explore our 232 acre campus, more than 80 clubs and organizations, and 23 varsity or NCAA DIII sports.
