Plaza College held its One Hundred and Fourth Commencement Ceremony at Queens Theatre in the Park on Sunday, August 1st with students participating in person and virtually. Congratulations to all of the students whose hard work and dedication paid off, walking across the stage and graduating from their respective programs on Sunday!
Founded in 1916, Plaza College strives to continue to put student success – both in their education and their future careers – at the forefront! We are extremely pleased to announce not ONE, but TWO new programs for students to pursue:
Gain access to this highly sought-after Upper Division Nursing, B.S. program through one of two tracks:
Direct Entry: Students who possess a prior degree (Associate or Bachelor) or at least 60 college credits and have taken the required LAS prerequisites may apply for direct entry into the B.S. program.
Foundational Entry: First-time college students and those who do not possess a prior degree and/or LAS prereqs may apply for acceptance into the Allied Health Science program to complete the requirements to qualify to apply to the B.S. program.
Court Reporting graduate, Lydia Martinez, was featured in the JCR for spreading the word to the NBC Law & Order crew about what modern day court reporting really looks like (teaser: NOT PAPER!). Read more by clicking the link below!
Welcome to the Spring 2021 semester. We can’t wait to see what you will accomplish this term!
We want to wish Ms.Lata Gopaul (BBA) and Ms.Diane Daniel (DH-Associates) the best of luck as they prepare to participate as panelists on behalf of Sigma Kappa Delta for Plaza College at the National Honor Society Convention. Both students will speak at a featured roundtable entitled, ‘From Fright to Flight: How The Pandemic Gave Me Wings.
Congratulations to Anthony D., the winner of Court Reporting Tik Tok Challenge!
Great job and thank you to everyone who participated!
"During my time at Plaza, the professors and staff were friendly and inviting. They were always willing to lend a hand when needed. Plaza prepared me with all the education I could need to become a medical assistant."
Being accepted to Plaza College was an exciting moment in my life. It allowed me to achieve my goal; to complete a Bachelor's in the Business Administration program. Plaza College professors and administrative staff are dedicated to helping students to be successful in their endeavors.
“My mother graduated from Plaza. My father graduated from Plaza. My brother graduated from Plaza. I graduated from Plaza. We are very proud of our educational background.”
"Being a student at Plaza College has paved a new road of achievement towards a successful career in Medical Assisting for me. My time here has been filled with academic accomplishments on things I didn't think I could do! Plaza College is your career starter!"
“Professor Warmouth has always gone above and beyond in supporting what I need to do, whether it’s for her class or another in the program. She’s taught me additional skills on top of what we learn.”
“Everyone you meet here supports your career trajectory in one way or another. Dr. Anderson told me you have to know what you want and be on your ‘p’s and q’s.’ I realized I had to focus and buckle down on my studies to be successful. “
“I went to another school that didn’t give me the care and personal attention the way Plaza College does. They truly care about me becoming a better person."
"The Court Reporting Faculty at Plaza College has helped me in so many way. Even after I graduated, I have still been in touch with all of them and they have helped me with job placement and test taking!"
"I am currently in my last semester of the Medical Assistant Program. Our last semester comes with an externship component, where we demonstrate all the skills we learned at Plaza College. I strongly feel that Plaza College has prepared me with both my clinical and clerical skills."
"My admissions advisor guided me, set up appointments and sat with me through the process. Other schools simply threw the requirements at me, but at Plaza I received personal attention.”
“Academically, teachers are always willing to help you and will stay longer after the classes. They are responsive over email and you can always go to the Academic Resource Center (ARC) for extra support.”
“Being a single parent and coming back to school after a good amount of time was definitely a challenge and the professors have been willing and easy to communicate with. If I’m having a difficult situation, need some flexibility or need clarification, they’ve been easy to reach out to with no hesitation."
“The hands-on training has been a tremendous help in preparing me for my externship. Everything I was taught in all my clinical classes was exactly what I was able to use in my externship and more. The skills that I learned at Plaza College will help me in all of my future endeavors.”
“I chose Plaza College because I wanted to be in an accelerated program, where I am able to commit full-time, and start working as a dental hygienist much faster. One thing I can truly say is that the administration, staff, and the new long-life friends that you make here will help you get through all the obstacles one step at a time!
