Established in 1906, SUNY Canton started as the first post-secondary, two-year college in New York until it was designated as the State University of New York (SUNY) College of Technology at Canton. The population of this college is demographically diverse with international students from different countries. Such diversity fosters a unique academic and cultural learning experience for the students.

The campus is situated in semi-rural area near the Grasse River and downtown Canton occupying a 555-acre land comprised of twenty buildings with specialized labs, residential facilities and various college centers. Several athletic facilities such as the ice arena, lap pool, field house, fitness center, turf field and running trails can also be found on this campus.

As preparation for professional career or higher educational pursuit, SUNY Canton offers 23 Bachelor's degrees, 22 Associates degrees and 7 one-year professional certificate programs. These programs fall into any of the three distinct schools: Canino School of Engineering Technology; School of Business and Liberal Arts; and School of Health, Science and Criminal Justice. Eight Bachelor’s degrees and 190 courses are offered online.

SUNY Canton utilizes a ladder curriculum for all its academic programs to allow students to gain initial credits for a four-year baccalaureate degree. Through the Associated Colleges agreement, students can transfer to Clarkson University, St. Lawrence University and SUNY Potsdam. 

This college is active in athletics and many of its students are involved in sports but apart from athletics, SUNY Canton students can also participate in other recreational activities and organizational projects.
