You may ask yourself if Nyack College is right for you. You might wonder what it is like to attend a Christian college. Or you may wonder about the benefits of a small liberal arts college in New York. But really you have to ask yourself if Nyack and you are a good fit. 90% of our freshmen say that their experience here was good and excellent. But before they even came to Nyack, they had to think honestly about what our college is and who they are as well.
We’re a Christian College
Schools like Dominican or Houghton may come to mind but Nyack is different for many reasons. We were founded in 1882 and are a college devoted to exalting Jesus Christ through global awareness, personal education, and professional work.
When students feel stressed and overwhelmed by coursework or real life tragedy, it’s not unusual for faculty and peers to stop everything—and pray. Worship brings us closer to God and to the calling He has for us. Each week, we have a chapel schedule that allows faculty and students to come together as a community of Christians. We sing and socialize, we catch up and take time to thank Jesus for everything He has given us
We have two Campuses
Nyack College was founded in New York City. Our roots as a seminary and Christian and Missionary Alliance institution began in historic downtown. Since the late 19th century our school has grown to include two campuses.
At 2 Washington Street, we’ve just moved into brand-new classrooms with gorgeous views over the river. Our famous neighbors include the Statue of Liberty, Ellis Island, Trinity Chapel, and the Freedom Tower.
In Nyack, New York, our administrative and academic buildings are perched on a hillside overlooking the Hudson River and the artisanal town of Nyack. If you like outdoor adventures, you’re steps away from hiking, biking, and kayaking. Just 40 minutes north of Manhattan, this campus is the gateway to upstate New York and a quick drive to Times Square.
From our adult programs to our brand new Nursing Department, Nyack College keeps our academics up to date in response to modern-day workforce needs. Online and evening classes permit students to pursue their degrees while working full time or raising a family.
Scholarships and Grants
We pride ourselves in helping students, not just academically and spiritually but also financially. Last year we awarded over $9 million in awards and this year we continue to offer dozens of scholarships for students who are attending our school. If you are a transfer student, a music lover, or even have a sibling already attending Nyack, then you may be eligible for one of our scholarships. Check them out!
Multi-Cultural and Multi-National Student Body
Nyack College is purposefully multi-cultural. Our students speak dozens of languages and come to our school from Asia, Africa, and Europe. We share ideas and work together to not just learn academically but spiritually.
