Submitted by Village Maria College
Villa Maria and Medaille University have reached a teach-out agreement that will allow Medaille’s students to complete their degrees at the college once their university closes in August.
Medaille students will be accepted to the college and can transfer the credits they have earned toward equivalent programs at Villa. All Mavericks will be assigned an individual transfer counselor who will help them identify which of Villa Maria’s 19 academic programs most closely aligns with their current course of study. Some of the most overt matches include business, communications and psychology.
Villa Maria’s tuition for the fall 2023 semester is less than what Medaille students paid for the 2022-23 academic year, as well as most other institutions in Western New York. Plus, textbooks and supplies are free for all students who attend the college. Additionally, Villa Maria can offer an unlimited number of Say Yes scholarships to students who attended a Buffalo Public High School for four years.
“This situation is understandably upsetting, and it’s probably not something any of these students thought they’d have to work through,” said Dr. Matthew Giordano, Villa Maria’s president. “Villa is ready to welcome all incoming and undergraduate students who want to complete their degrees, and we’ll work with them to facilitate their transition. Villa is home to so many people for so many reasons, we believe the Mavericks will feel at home in our diverse, diverse, supportive, and tight-knit community that mirrors the atmosphere found at Medaille.”
