An American Education Close to Home
Since 1933, Monroe College’s two campuses in New York have been providing students in the United States a quality education that prepares them for the real world. Our St. Lucia campus, which has been in existence since 2007, offers students who do not have the ability to study in the United States an opportunity to earn a degree from an accredited American institution close to home.
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.
Generous Transfer Policy
Monroe provides students with an opportunity to earn credit in a variety of ways including: credits earned at a prior institution, examinations and life experience. Students may also earn credit if they were in the military or attended Police or Correctional Training Academies.

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.
Unlike most colleges, which award a Baccalaureate degree after completion of four years, Monroe has a three-semester calendar that provides you the opportunity to complete your degree more quickly than at another institution.
Convenient Location & Class Schedules that fit your life
Just a short walk from government buildings, the recently renovated, air-conditioned St. Lucia campus is easily accessed by public and private transportation. The campus is in close proximity to a pleasant downtown area that includes restaurants, quaint shops, tourist attractions, the library, and a picturesque harbor.
Classes are offered during the day, evening and weekends to accommodate the needs of our traditional graduate population as well as working adults. Students often combine campus classes with online classes to improve their flexibility.
More than a College, a Family
College can be difficult, particularly when you’re trying to learn the customs of a new country. But at Monroe, you’ll find a very unique culture of caring. This is not a place of huge, impersonal lecture halls. Monroe is an environment of small classrooms, most with less than 25 students, and professors who know you by name. A place where the Senior administrators on campus will be talking to you between classes. A place where every student is assigned an Academic Advisor to monitor their progress. Here, we know you and care about your progress. Monroe is an entire family of support. One you’ll have for a lifetime.
