BELOW AVERAGE

This index doesn’t consider students of nontraditional enrollments - part-time students, students who enroll mid-year, and who transfer from one institution to another. So graduation rate alone can create a misleading perception. Completion rate in the form of total number of students receiving any types of awards/degrees creates a complete picture. Combining this data with graduation rate is a better way to compare schools.

How do I even begin to explain the change I experienced not only academically but personally at MCNY? First the staff was so welcoming and genuinely interested in ME!! They were warm and informative to me as a mature learner and put me at ease immediately as to all the young people walking around. I really thought I could not keep up. NOT! Then, the faculty. Yes, they were tough but tough to keep you on your toes and interested. ALL of them were outstanding. They instilled a discipline in me to stay focused, be on time and prepared and do your assignments!! They had a personal interest in my succeeding. (Hey Heidi). They held me to a standard and made ME motivated to finish and finish I did. I got to carry my schools flag at graduation!! I am so blessed to be an MCNY Graduate of 2007 BABY! I recommend to my mature prospects to GO FOR IT! You cant lose.

I came here not knowing; ignorant of anything college related. I wasn't necessarily ignorant by choice, but by circumstances. Prior to coming here I had already completed my studies in CASAC training in Brooklyn, so I did have some motivation to continue with my education. I still can not believe the ease with which I became a part of this institution. I am not saying this institution is for everyone. It has its certain fields of specialized studies. This school is well known for its Human Services studies. If you are in need of continuing your education, at your pace, this would be the right place for you. You just need the will to want to achieve, the motivation to make it happen, and the resilience to see it through. P.S. PLEASE...do not put too much on your plate. Do not overwhelm yourself. Take your time. You have the rest of your life to get things right. Take it from me. It is only as difficult as you make it for yourself and that can be very difficult indeed. Good luck.
