The State University of New York at Canton (SUNY Canton) is a public, coeducational, residential college located on a spacious campus along the banks of the Grasse River in St. Lawrence County, New York, United States within the Town of Canton. Its northern location places SUNY Canton close to the Adirondack Mountains, the St. Lawrence River, and major Canadian cities such as Ottawa and Montreal.

The College works with SUNYIT to offer students three master's degree programs. SUNY Canton's 14 athletic teams compete as members of the NCAA Division III and the USCAA.

Originally founded in 1906 as the School of Agriculture (SOA) at St. Lawrence University, SUNY Canton was the first postsecondary, two-year college in New York authorized by the Legislature. In 1941, SOA was renamed the New York State Agricultural and Technical Institute (ATI). ATI became a member college of the State University of New York in 1948. To recognize advanced technology programs added in the 1950s and '60s, the College underwent another name change in 1965, this time becoming the State University of New York Agricultural and Technical College at Canton or ATC. In 1987, the University's Board of Trustees authorized yet another name change to the College's present designation as State University of New York College of Technology at Canton.

Beginning a new era for the College, in 1997 SUNY Canton received bachelor's degree granting approval from the SUNY Trustees and the Governor of New York State. Since 1997, over 20 bachelor's degree programs have been approved, and several others are in development.

In 2012, a fire damaged part of the Cook Science Center.

Since SUNY Canton offers one-year certificates, associate degrees and bachelor's degrees, students in many disciplines may pursue a "ladder curriculum", allowing them to first earn a certificate and then proceed to the next level. SUNY Canton confers degrees through three academic schools: the School of Business & Liberal Arts, Canino School of Engineering Technology, and School of Science, Health & Criminal Justice.
