Looking to expand your education? The SUNY system is giving you new chances to get a degree without ever leaving your house and a local college is involved.
An initiative called "Open SUNY" will offer eight online degrees through the state system. Right now, the degree programs will be available at six campuses. Locally we're told it will be available at Finger Lakes Community College.
SUNY says there will be both academic and technical support for students taking classes online.
Officials are hoping the online initiative will help to enroll 100,000 new students over the next five years.
