Degree: Early Childhood Education
Graduation Year: 2015

The pros are the effectiveness of the teacher-student involvement and help they have to offer. Teachers are frequently available when help is needed. Academic work is challenging yet explained and walked through by the professor. The cons are unprepared material on the New York State exams. Teachers are unsure of the material provided on the exams therefore cannot prepare the students to take and pass them.

Degree: Physical Therapy
Graduation Year: 2016

The weekend format is good for students to work full time and study full time, however most of the school facilities are not available on the weekend. The classrooms are not heated or cooled well on the weekend, the bathrooms are not stocked, the library, cafeteria and bookstore are not open as long. The professors of the DPT program are all working professionals with real-life, current experience. They are dedicated to your success but more importantly, they are dedicated to producing quality physical therapists. If you are unsure of becoming a PT, do not do this program. It is an unbelievable amount of work and very difficult. You have to really want it.

Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2015

I am currently a graduate student at Mercy college. I am in my final year of the Nursing education program. I have taken classes both online and on campus and I have found the advisors and faculty to be very helpful. I believe they genuinely want to see everyone succeed and they always follow through to ensure yo aren't falling behind. It is a private school so the tuition is expensive, but you will receive a great education.

Overall the program is competitive what I have a hard time understanding is the school policy on taking new state exams before continuing on in the education program.

Degree: Psychology

The college does not have a better financial aid system in place for graduate students. This needs to be address, because grad students are normally older adult students who work and attend school, and they do suffer lay offs, unemployment and other shortcomings, and would benefit from a scholarship or two and other financial aid resources. The program director of my program makes the graduate program. She is the best at what she does, and takes the time out to listen and advocate for the students.

Degree: Early Childhood Education
Graduation Year: 2015

As a student of the Graduate School of Education's Online Program, I have found that the teachers for the most part, are very willing to help you out, assist with any difficulties one might have and work with you to make sure you are learning the necessary things for your degree. My personal issue is that the lack of communication between the Deans, as well as the Chairpeople is absolutely horrendous. Due to the changing teaching standards, they have repeatedly tinkered with the program, and I have never received word of changes. In addition they also bar you from registering if you do not complete the Certification tests within a certain amount of time. I am graduating a year and a half later than expected due to this. No other school that I know of has this requirement. In addition, the financial aid office is not supportive or willing to answer questions. They also have a problem with different people giving different answers for things. If you have to come here, then beware. But personally I wish I didn't. I know I have to finish I have come so far.

Degree: Early Childhood Education
Graduation Year: 2015

The pros I feel about the graduate program the mandatory fieldwork that is required in the class. With the fieldwork, you are able to apply what you are learning in class and incorporate it in lesson plans or classroom management. The teachers are very supportive and understanding with students. These are not just professors who do this for a paycheck but mentors to help us along the way. The only con I would have to say is the little financial aid. Unfortunately financial is not determined by the grades of a student but of their income or their parents income. Many students are choosing not to go to Mercy College because the financial aid is too much.
