Offers classes on-ground Monday through Friday.

At Bay Path University, we welcome students (commuters and residents), just like you, from across the country and around the world who are smart, capable young women who want to make a difference and be successful.

Here, you join a small, highly personal community that empowers you to take ownership of your life through:

  • Highly relevant majors and minors that give you practical knowledge, a global viewpoint, and the unique perspectives that make connections between subject areas and current topics.
  • Leadership opportunities that focus on your strengths, encouraging you to find your voice and act on your convictions.
  • Real-world experience balanced with career counseling that gives you a distinct advantage for graduate school or that rewarding first job.
  • More important, our admission counselors are here to help you and your family, guiding you through the admissions and financial aid process by taking your questions and connecting you with the right resources.

 

Why it pays to be a Bay Path woman:

  • Significant Financial Support. All of our full-time students receive a merit scholarship from Bay Path University, and more than 96% of our students receive additional financial aid that included grants, scholarships and loans. 
  • Close Attention from Faculty. With a 12:1 student-to-faculty ratio, you'll form close relationships with your professors that will lead to research, internship and networking opportunities. 
  • Thoughtful and Intentional Career Planning For Life. Our Sullivan Career and Life Planning Center (SCLP) is one of the best of its kind. As a Bay Path student, you will have lifetime access to the SCLP and the services it provides, including one-on-one career coaching and mentoring.

 

Undergraduate Study

 

A Place Where Knowledge Is Gained and Shared

 

If you ask a Bay Path woman graduate to define her academic experience, it would be one word: transformational. There is no other way to describe it.

Yes, we have majors in neurobiology, cybersecurity, and business analytics, as well as minors and concentrations that deepen your knowledge in a specific area. But we also educate the whole person, giving you the courage and confidence to be your best self, to help you get where you have to go, and to take on more in your life. It’s why women’s education still matters.

 

American Women’s College

 

Are you one of the 76 million American women who has accomplished many things in her life yet still lacks a bachelor's degree? You are not alone. At The American Women's College, we understand the reasons that women pause their education early in life:

 

  • Maybe going to college wasn’t right for you at the time
  • Maybe you started college and decided it wasn't a good fit
  • And then there other competing factors like family, work, and day-to-day pressures

 

Looking back, do you still wish you had earned a college degree?  Now you can—with The American Women’s College Online. We offer:

 

We'll help you reach your graduation goal by:

  • Providing you with an online learning experience that emphasizes how women learn best—through collaboration and support
  • Developing your confidence and your career direction—they go hand-in-hand—through our Women as Empowered Learners and Leaders (WELL) program
  • Introducing you to our online, virtual classrooms through SOUL—an innovative platform that responds to how you learn best, monitors your progress in real time, and connects you with classmates in ways you never thought possible

 

We're ready to help you take the next step on your educational journey. And we'll support you from start to finish. (That's why our completion rate is more than twice the national average!)
