Bachelor of Science in Organizational Leadership
Finish Your College Degree
The undergraduate degree completion program at Manhattan College is a unique alternative to the traditional method of earning a college degree. The program is designed to provide adult students a non-traditional opportunity to complete a baccalaureate degree for the advancement of their professional careers and for personal achievement.
The program is offered in a highly structured, hybrid format. Each group of students proceeds as a cohort through a series of courses and experiences leading to a common completion. Utilizing a collaborative format, each cohort persists together throughout the program of courses as mutually supportive learning communities supported by faculty facilitators and interactive communication.
The program consists of 60 credits taken at Manhattan College. A Bachelor of Science Degree with a concentration in Organizational Leadership from Manhattan College will be conferred once a student has completed 60 credits at Manhattan College, acquired 60 credits transferred from prior or other educational sources, and has met all financial obligations.

Employee Reimbursement Program
Contact your company’s personnel office to investigate this source of financial assistance.
If your employer will cover full tuition costs, you will only need to pay tuition for the first course at the time of registration. You may use the reimbursement you receive from your employer for the first course and succeeding courses to cover tuition costs.
If your employer will cover partial tuition costs, you may deduct the partial amount from the tuition due each term. The resulting balance will be the amount due at registration, and you must pay it in full or according to a pre-arranged payment plan.
You are responsible for processing the funds that will be available from your employer. A signed promissory note will be required at registration, verifying the level of employer tuition assistance available. Signed documents from your employer will also be required. Some employers ask to pay course reimbursements on a term basis; if this is so in your case, you will need to make special arrangements with the financial coordinator regarding an acceptable schedule for payment. Minimally, in such a situation, you will be required to pay for the first course in each term.
Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover Card, cash, personal checks and money orders are accepted for payment of tuition fees.
Eligibility is determined by the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA). Please contact your VA representative to find out if you qualify.
Manhattan College’s VA certifying official is Agnes Flynn. She can be reached at 718-862-7352.
