The Camino Program at Manhattan College is a two-year associate degree program in general studies designed to provide academic support and resources to native Spanish-speaking students. Students in this program reinforce their English skills while acquiring a degree. Students benefit from tutoring, study groups, and academic counseling to help them succeed at Manhattan College.
Camino students follow a 15-week semester. See the undergraduate calendar.
Upon successfully graduating with an associate degree, student have the opportunity to transfer into a bachelor's degree program at Manhattan College.
Camino students receive assistance in applying for federal and state aid to study in the Camino Program. In most cases, students who are eligible for full aid will study in the program tuition-free.
Students not eligible for full federal and state aid may need to apply for a loan and establish a payment plan with the College to meet tuition and fee costs.

The mission of the Camino Program is to provide native Spanish-speaking students with an associate degree while improving their oral and written English language proficiency. The program is committed to providing a curriculum inspired by the Lasallian core principles of quality education, social justice, leadership, and equity. The program will achieve this by collaborating with diverse faculty, administrators, and staff who not only reflect the student body composition but are committed to justice for diverse students and communities.
As part of our commitment to Camino students, everyone is assigned an advisor upon entering the program. The program adapts the "intrusive advising" model. The model follows an action-oriented robust, year-round schedule that includes academic support, emotional and motivational counseling, employment counseling, and transfer guidance.
Camino graduates may stay at the college to obtain their bachelor's degree or continue at another four-year college after graduation. We will assist the student with the transfer process. Please see below for the Camino transfer credit options:
