Baccalaureate and Beyond Science Mentoring Program

The Purchase College SUNY Baccalaureate and Beyond Community College Mentoring Program provides a full array of mentoring activities for community college students to assist them in completing their Associate’s degrees, transferring to a four-year college, and finally attaining Bachelor’s degrees. Students in the program complete Bachelor’s degrees at three times the national average for community college students, and 70% of those degrees are in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) fields. More than 20% of participating students go on to continue their STEM studies in graduate school.
