The Monroe Advantage Plan (MAP) is a program that allows
students to participate in three
full semesters a year, giving
them a chance to earn their degree in just three years and still have plenty of
vacation. Time off includes two weeks in December, two weeks in April and five
weeks in the summer.
By attending three
semesters per year, Monroe
students graduate sooner and can move ahead with their careers. You can
earn an associate degree in two years, and it is possible to complete a
bachelor’s degree in less than three years! Statistics show that students who attend the College without interruption
increase their chances of graduating on time by as much as 65%.
MAP is also your key to an affordable college education. Monroe scholarships and grants are awarded to students each semester who maintain good academic standing and continue their registration for consecutive semesters. Attending Monroe for three semesters each year is the answer to maintaining an affordable tuition plan. Additionally, new institutional aid rules may impact students who do not enroll for all three semesters each year.
Monroe offers rigorous academic programs and has superior outcomes. In fact, the College awards the greatest number of undergraduate diplomas to minority students of any college or university in New York. Monroe has been recognized repeatedly in independent assessments for the personal attention our students receive.
