Admission Requirements

At The College of New Rochelle, we seek to enroll students that desire the benefits of a private school grounded in the Catholic tradition.

Each application is reviewed and judged on the merits of the individual. Successful applicants must demonstrate the intellectual and academic ability to succeed.

Students who show evidence of leadership, special talents or interests, and other personal qualities through extracurricular activities, volunteer work, and other non-academic pursuits may qualify for scholarship and grant opportunities.
