Manhattanville College has announced plans to support The College of New Rochelle (CNR) students in response to a CNR statement that the school is â€śunlikelyâ€ť to stay open by the end of the summer.
â€śManhattanville offers The College of New Rochelle students a smooth and easy transition to a nearby iconic Westchester college,â€ť said Manhattanville president Dr. Michael Geisler. â€śCNR students will find similar values and wonderful resources at Manhattanville and we will do our utmost to ensure a rapid, seamless integration of them into our welcoming community.â€ś

Manhattanville will offer transfer scholarships for CNR students and provide housing for the fall 2019 and spring 2020 semesters, according to a Manhattanville release.
The school will also honor the New Rochelle studentâ€™s current semester costs and have ensured that their out of pocket expenses will be equal to or less than what they paid in the spring 2019 semester at CNR.
â€śOffering to match cost is a way of helping students make a decision based upon which program is best for their future. Making a transition as a college student can be fraught with challenges, and we have put together a program that will make transferring simple for CNR students and their families,â€ť said Manhattanville vice president for enrollment management Peter Burns.
