Program Details

The Camino Program at Manhattan College is an academically based two-year Associates degree program in general studies designed to provide academic support and resources to native Spanish-speaking students. Students will reinforce their English skills while acquiring a degree.  Additionally, the student will benefit from tutoring, study groups, and academic counseling to help them succeed at Manhattan College.

Camino students follow the 15-week semester. See the undergraduate calendar.

Upon successfully graduating with an Associates degree, the student will have the opportunity to transfer into a bachelor's degree program at Manhattan College.
