School Overview

The College of New Rochelle (abbreviated CNR) is a four-year, undergraduate institution that is owned and operated by the Roman Catholic Church. Its primary campus is located in the city of New Rochelle, New York, but the colleges has branch campuses at four other locations.

The college was founded by the Order of the Ursulines (Catholic religious institutes) in 1904 as the the College of Saint Angela, an institution exclusively for women. The College of St. Angela was unique, in that during this period of time women were typically not allowed to attend higher education institutions. In 1910, the name was changed to the College of New Rochelle. Even though co-educational colleges and universities are the norm today, New Rochelle still goes out of its way to help underprivileged women obtain a college education. As of fall 2016, all four of the college’s academic schools are coeducational.

The college’s four academic schools include the School of Nursing & Healthcare Professions, Graduate School, School of New Resources (offers adult education programs), and School of Arts & Sciences. Not surprisingly, the School of Arts & Sciences, was the first to be established; hence, it is the oldest of CNR’s academic schools. This school offers courses in various disciplines and academic fields, including communication, business, pre-medicine, liberal arts and pre-law, among others.

CNR is regionally accredited by the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools. The college’s School of Nursing & Healthcare Professions has special accreditation status through the National League for Nursing. The college is fully accredited to award Bachelor of Arts (B.A.), Bachelor of Science (B.S.) and Bachelor of Fine Arts (B.F.A.). At the graduate level the college grants Master of Science (M.S.), Master of Arts and Master of Science in Education (M.S.Ed.)

CNR has a total annual enrollment of roughly 3,500 undergraduate students (spread across its five campuses) and an academic staff of about 720 (120 full-time and 640 adjunct faculty). The student-to-faculty ratio at CNR is 10 to 1 and nine out of ten faculty have a doctoral degree in their chosen field of expertise.
