In 1959, Manor College was chartered and incorporated in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. The College was approved by the State Council of Education Department of Instruction on June 17, 1964. The curricula at Manor are planned to embody the College's commitment to provide transfer and career-oriented programs of study which respond to the current changing needs of today's world. Through these programs, the student is prepared for transfer to a four-year college or university, while the career-oriented student, upon completion of a career program, is prepared for employment. The college offers Degrees and Certificates in Allied Health, Liberal Arts, Business Studies and Legal Studies.
