New York ranks among the five top states in the country for agricultural products

New York ranks among the five top states in the country for agricultural products, including; cabbage, dairy, apples, cherries, potatoes, and maple syrup. Its large manufacturing sector, located mainly upstate, includes printing, the production of garments, furs, railroad equipment, and bus lines. As home of the New York Stock Exchange, New York City is a major center for banking and finance. The city's economy is also driven by retail, transportation, tourism, new and traditional media, advertising, legal services, theater, fashion, and the arts. Many of New York's schools are dedicated to one or more of these industries, which in turn draws new students to the state for their post-secondary education. Online degrees are offered at many of these colleges and universities.

CUNY's School of Professional Studies as well as many of its community colleges, including CUNY Borough of Manhattan Community College and CUNY Bronx Community College, offer a variety of accredited online courses and certificates. SUNY's campuses such as Clinton Community College, offer a large and diverse selection of online associate's, bachelor's, and master's degrees.

Some of the world's most renowned private colleges and universities, including two Ivy League institutions (Columbia and Cornell), are located in New York. Among the private, not-for-profit schools, New York University (NYU) has a handful of online undergraduate and graduate programs available to its students. Cornell University offers online courses and degrees as well. Through its Columbia Video Network, Columbia University is able to offer more online degrees than any other Ivy League institution. With campuses in the Bronx and New Rochelle, the for-profit Monroe College developed distance learning courses back in 1998 and now offers over 30 online associate's bachelor's, and master's degrees. Berkeley College, another for-profit school known for its online degree programs, has locations throughout New York state.

Many online colleges in New York allow students to transfer credits, as well as earn credits based on work experience or military experience, depending on the institution. The acceptance of credits is subject to review by the school and cannot be guaranteed. Many online colleges in New York offer financial aid, but this is available only to those who qualify.
