About Molloy College
A quality, affordable education can be yours.
At Molloy College, students gain the knowledge, skills and self-confidence they need to make a difference in their lives and in our fast-paced, ever-changing world.
A private, Long Island college, Molloy provides a value-centered, multidimensional education with more than 50 quality academic undergraduate and graduate degree programs grounded in the Catholic faith, ideals of truth and respect for the dignity and worth of every individual. Our faculty is accomplished, yet approachable, leading small classes on Long Island where students are encouraged to think critically and explore creatively. Combining the strengths of academic excellence and leadership with personal, compassionate mentoring, we bring out the best in every student.
Located less than an hour from Manhattan, Molloy is one of the most affordable private colleges on Long Island. In fact, Money magazine recently ranked Molloy College one of the Nation's top-three value colleges for the second consecutive year. The recognition comes as part of the magazine's annual college rankings, which acknowledge the best of the country's institutions of higher education in a multitude of categories.
We were also ranked by U.S. News & World Report as one of the top colleges in the Northeast, higher than any other Long Island college in our category.
With approximately 5,000 undergraduate, graduate and doctoral students, Molloy is large enough to offer students an academically-challenging, high-quality educational experience. At the same time, the College is small enough to provide the personal attention that enhances every student's intellectual, ethical, spiritual and social development.
New facilities, including two residence halls, a student center and a performing arts theatre, enhance the student experience. With our recently-expanded international education program, over 60 clubs and honor societies, ample service opportunities, internships and NCAA Division II sports teams, students at Molloy College in New York have abundant opportunities to explore new interests, pursue athletics like lacrosse, basketball, baseball and soccer and enrich the local community, here, on Long Island. . . and around the globe.
