History

The college was approved by the State University of New York in 1965, and the County Board of Supervisors authorized the college in 1966. The first class, numbering 221 freshmen, entered in the Fall of 1967 at a temporary campus in the Village of Ilion. The temporary campus was the upper floors of the Remington Arms Company. The current, permanent campus came into use in 1971.

Herkimer College offers programs leading to associate's degrees or certificates in several dozen program areas. The college has partnered with Cazenovia College to offer a bachelor's degrees in "Criminal Justice and Homeland Security" and Inclusive Early Childhood on the Herkimer campus. The College's Internet Academy offers 20 degrees, three certificates and more than 150 courses, as well as support services, completely online.

With its growth has come great success with 52 NJCAA National Championships, 100 Region III titles, 142 Mountain Valley Collegiate Conference championships and 29 NJCAA Academic Team of the Year awards.

In 2013-14, Herkimer ranked first in the nation among two-year non-scholarship athletic programs by winning the National Alliance of Two-Year College Athletic Administrators (NATYCAA) Cup. Herkimer has finished in the top five of the NATYCAA Cup since its inception 10 years ago. Herkimer also won third place in the NCAA Learfield Sports Directors Cup in 2013-14. Both programs recognize excellence in two-year colleges, based on athletic success in championship competition.
