Master's Degree Programs

NYSUT’s Education & Learning Trust (NYSUT ELT) and Empire State University (Formerly known as Empire State College) have partnered to deliver a graduate education program to NYSUT members with flexible schedules at an affordable cost. NYSUT members can obtain a graduate degree and/or fulfill state certification requirements.

Partnership Overview:

ELT courses are offered site-based and online so students can complete the required courses in a few semesters or spread them over a longer period.

After completing the required course(s) with NYSUT with a B or better average, students formally apply to the college for matriculation into one of the partnership programs. These courses are available to NYSUT members pursuing a Master’s degree as well as those members interested in individual courses only (i.e., not pursuing the full degree program).
