It’s Official – Campus Status in the Bronx!

The New York State Board of Regents has approved the College’s application to convert our Bronx Extension Center to a full Branch Campus. Metropolitan College of New York has two fully equipped campuses at which students can pursue and complete their degree programs.

As you know, the College has had a presence in the Bronx through extension centers, on and off, for approximately twenty years. Our move into a new permanent 26,000 square foot facility last summer afforded us the opportunity to expand our degree program offerings to both continuing and prospective students.

The Bronx is booming with growth and opportunity and MCNY is happy to be both a source for growth and provider of opportunity. Together we can look forward to an empowered future in the Bronx!
