We also have a relationship with Hudson Valley Community College where students complete curricular requirements in the sciences and humanities. Since our schools are affiliated with Northeast Health, the region's most comprehensive network of healthcare and community services, students can participate in clinical and observational experiences in a variety of care settings, including hospitals, nursing homes, physician offices and daycare centers.

We look at why millions of Americans are choosing community college over a traditional four-year school today.
Many students enroll in community college with the intent of transferring to a four-year school. Of those who do, many succeed, and yet traditional colleges and universities continue to overlook them. Read on to learn more about why more community college students don’t transfer schools and to receive some tips for making the transfer yourself.
Community college is the only option for many students who either can’t afford a traditional four-year university or who need a more flexible school environment. Just because community college is different, however, doesn’t mean that its students matter any less. The Aspen Prize exists to encourage community colleges to do more for their students and to continually strive for improvement.
