Metropolitan College of New York has two campuses one located in the financial district in Manhattan and in the South Bronx in the “Hub”. At MCNY our Purpose is progress — Metropolitan College of New York provides a lasting education that reaches far beyond the classroom creating productive, civic-minded citizens who help bring change to their communities and workplaces.
We are an attractive option for High School students who are interested in staying in NYC and completing their degree at an accelerated pace so they can move forward in their careers. We have built strong relationships with the city’s largest organizations, such as ACS, FDNY, Health and Hospitals, NYPD, and more. The integration of practice and theory allows students with little or no work experience, an opportunity to build work experience, and a professional network in the classroom. Our degree programs are very focused and based on careers that are projected to grow steadily in the future.
MCNY delivers classes in 3 different ways:
Classes are offered in the day, evening, and on Saturdays.
First-generation college students often struggle after high school because they are lacking support and may not know how to navigate higher education. Each student is assigned an admissions counselor, financial aid advisor, academic counselor, and mentor to assist them throughout their college experience. Our Learning Enhancement Center is available for students and provides free and flexible tutoring. We aspire to educate our students so that they are comfortable with the processes and will eventually feel confident enough to serve as a mentor for others as well. Students will receive robust, holistic, individual support from their MCNY support team.
We are SAT and ACT optional! – Students do not have to take the SAT or the ACT to be accepted into the college. MCNY offers an entrance assessment to all students with a 70 average or below.
High School graduates who enroll in MCNY within a year of graduation are eligible for up to 2,000 per semester (a total of 16,000) in HS scholarships.
