Thanks for your interest in Russell Sage College.

We are known for nationally accredited academic programs with great job placement, for competitive tuition and financial aid and — especially — for our tight-knit, supportive community.

At Sage, your professors and fellow students will know you by name, so you are not only a student here but a member of a community. One of the great things about a small college like Sage is that we get to know each other as people, and we help each other out. 

Faculty are here to help you master course material and identify internships, research opportunities and service projects that align with your unique goals. 

A team of academic and career advisors is ready to offer additional guidance as you build your resume and your professional network.

Initiatives like Ready. Set. Go! and Thrive @ Russell Sage will introduce you to our vast student support resources and help you build well-being and resilience.

And a friendly group of current students will also welcome you and help you adjust to college life.  

Whether you are entering college for the first time or transferring from another school, starting something new can be hard. 

We’re all here to help you make the connections you need to succeed — and we’re eager for the ideas and energy you’ll share with the Sage community in return. 

After you explore, please visit us in Albany and Troy, New York.

Here’s to beginnings and new learning!
