College-bound students and their parents are always looking for an academic environment that offers the best fit for the student and the best value for their tuition dollars. Last year Molloy was ranked the #18 “value added” college in the U.S. by The Wall Street Journal, arguably the nation’s premier financial publication. Additionally, Newsday recently produced an enrollment overview of the many private colleges in our region. While most of Molloy’s competitors struggled in the 2012–2017 period, Molloy “saw the largest increase, rising by more than 11 percent.” Molloy has also earned other honors, including being ranked the #10 best value among Catholic colleges nationwide by College Values Online.
“We are dedicated to providing our students with the best possible value. If you come to Molloy, you graduate with a job in your field at a salary that’s significantly higher than average.”

Investing in Student Success
“We invest in student success and we challenge our students to succeed. Molloy students are committed to a value system that stresses a strong work ethic, resiliency, professionalism and leadership,” said President Bogner. “This is why they graduate, and why they get hired. We reach beyond the classroom and educate the entire person.”
A small student-to-faculty ratio (10:1) means that students are more than a number to their professors, who provide input and guidance that enable students to “live their story” and pursue their dreams.
Drawing on the Strength of the New York Metropolitan Region
One of the many strengths of Molloy is its proximity to New York City. Nestled in the Long Island suburbs just minutes from Manhattan, Molloy takes advantage of the NYC metro region to provide its students with the highest quality internships and clinical placements. The largest metropolitan region in the country, the NYC metro area is a world leader in healthcare, business and finance, education, criminal justice, performing arts and more.
Molloy, founded in 1955 by the Sisters of Saint Dominic in Amityville, N.Y., and home to approximately 4,900 undergraduate and graduate students, recently opened its new facility at 50 Broadway in lower Manhattan. The space serves as the new home of the Molloy/CAP21 B.F.A. in musical theatre, and also hosts other academic programs and special events.
The College continues to expand its flexible learning options for many of its programs, so that students can take night, weekend, hybrid or online classes. Some of Molloy’s newer offerings include an online MBA, as well as a new degree completion program that will enable returning students to easily complete their undergraduate degree.
Molloy recently opened the new Barbara H. Hagan Center for Nursing, which houses the College’s School of Nursing and serves Molloy’s nationally-ranked nursing programs. This follows significant additions to the Molloy campus in recent years, including a student center (which houses the Madison Theatre) and two residence halls. A new residence hall, the College’s third, recently opened.
