Utica College opened in 1946 as an extension of nearby Syracuse University to serve the educational needs of New York's Mohawk Valley. The school transitioned to a financially independent college in 1995 and began offering graduate degrees in 1998. With a focus on professional studies, the school offers degrees in arts and sciences; humanities and social sciences; business and justice; and health professions and education.

All students can work closely with their success coaches, who serve as a resource for accessing tutoring services, navigating financial aid and student accounts, and planning an academic program. The online undergraduate programs offer degree completion opportunities. Admission requires a 2.5 GPA in college courses with completion of at least 57 credits.
