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 percent of those degrees are in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) fields. More than 20 percent of participating students go on to continue their STEM studies in graduate school.
