A Real World Education
Since its founding in 1933, Monroe College has emphasized real-world understanding as a key element of a student's academic journey. The college combines innovative academics with a signature internship program, experiential learning and in some cases a study abroad program.
This unique learning environment provides students with an education like no other. The incorporation of course work and real-world experience develops students' critical thinking and creative problem-solving skills while introducing them to new perspectives in their fields. As a result, undergraduates and graduates are better prepared for the success in their careers and ultimately, in life.
Students have the opportunity to earn a degree in some of the fastest growing fields through one of our seven schools. Monroe also offers students the opportunity to specialize in a specific area by earning either a concentration or minor. Whatever you choose, you’ll know that you’ll be both challenged and supported by a group of professors that often come from industry and have a singular focus of making sure that you are academically successful.
Our campuses provide for a wide range of experiences for students. Our Bronx campus provides commuting students with a bustling urban environment and a convenient location. Our New Rochelle campus offers students the opportunity to live on-campus or commute in our lovely downtown suburban campus just a 30 minute train ride from grand Central Station in New York City. Finally, for Caribbean students, we offer a St. Lucia campus that provides a more convenient campus to earn a degree from Monroe.
Monroe College is accredited by the Middle States Commission on Higher Education. The Middle States Commission on Higher Education is an institutional accrediting agency recognized by the U.S. Secretary of Education and the Council for Higher Education Accreditation.
The College offers ample financial aid to students seeking the benefits of a Monroe education, through a combination of need-based aid, scholarships and grants.
