CNR Next Steps Frequently Asked Questions

Background about the agreement with the former College of New Rochelle (CNR):

Following the March 2019 agreement between Mercy College and The College of New Rochelle (CNR), Mercy College registered nearly 1,700 CNR students for classes in the fall of 2019. The College also received approval to teach most CNR academic programs, made offers to hire 70 faculty and staff and negotiated leases to use three former CNR Campuses (New Rochelle, Harlem and Brooklyn). These efforts provided a seamless pathway for CNR students to continue their education uninterrupted after CNR ceased academic operations on August 10, 2019.
