Molloy is now Molloy University!

Molloy College recently announced that it is now...Molloy University.

“This name change recognizes what Molloy has become: a leader in undergraduate and graduate education and its expanded role in transforming the lives of our students and the Long Island regional community,” said Dr. James Lentini, Molloy’s President.

Molloy Emphasizes Careers, Value

College-bound students and their parents are always looking for an academic environment that offers the best fit and the best value for their tuition dollars. Molloy was recently named one of the top 50 “Value” institutions in the country by Niche, the only Long Island university or college to earn this distinction and one of only five Catholic colleges to make this prestigious list. Molloy has also earned other honors, including being ranked # 7 in a list of the “Safest Colleges” in the nation, as chosen by Newsweek.

In addition to being recognized as a great value, Molloy is one of the lower-priced private universities in the region, and approximately 90 percent of Molloy students receive some form of institutional aid.

Additionally, Molloy’s strong retention and graduation rates means that the majority of its students graduate on time, resulting in significant financial savings compared to students who transfer to other colleges or universities.

“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.”
Dr. James Lentini President, Molloy University

Investing in Students’ Success

“We invest in our students’ success, and we prepare them to succeed. Molloy students are committed to a value system that stresses a strong work ethic, resiliency, professionalism and leadership,” said President Lentini. “This is why they graduate and find success individually and professionally. Inspired by our Catholic, Dominican tradition, we welcome a diverse community of students and reach beyond the classroom to educate the entire person.”

A small student-to-faculty ratio (10:1) means that students are more than a number to Molloy’s professors, who provide input and guidance that enable students to pursue their dreams.

Academic Programs That Fuel Careers

Molloy students can earn degrees in a variety of outstanding academic programs (including nursing, business, education, social work, music therapy, computer studies and many more), led by an outstanding faculty, that lead to rich and rewarding careers. Additionally, Molloy offers a variety of graduate and doctoral programs that provide the opportunity for students to further enhance their career or take a new direction while pursuing a passion. The University’s graduate and doctoral programs include a variety of MBA options, as well as programs in Clinical Mental Health Counseling, Criminal Justice, Music Therapy, Speech-Language Pathology, Education and Nursing.

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 much, much more.
