All of us at Keuka College are deeply saddened to see Medaille University enter the final chapter of its 85-year history. We are committed to making it as easy as possible for Medaille students to transfer to Keuka College for Fall 2023. We're honored Medaille chose to partner with us to provide students with a seamless teach-out experience.
We've put this guide together to help you understand one of the pathways available to you.
- A Similar Campus Vibe: A lakeside campus and College community that’s similar to Medaille's. Just like Medaille, we are a small campus, allowing us to give our students the individual attention they need to succeed.
- Field Period® Program: You’ll have the opportunity to complete one Field Period® experience every year you’re at Keuka College. A Field Period® is an internship, independent project, or experience abroad that prepares you for life after College with a full resume and robust professional network.
- Similar Opportunities: From small classes to one-on-one attention from professors, to avenues for undergraduate research and more, you’ll find opportunities at Keuka College that you’ve grown accustomed to at Medaille.
Keuka College offers many of the same majors as Medaille. A complete list of majors is available here, but a list of all majors that are comparable to those offered at Medaille is provided near the bottom of this page.
As part of our teach-out agreement with Medaille University, Keuka College will meet or exceed all institutional financial aid programs you currently receive from Medaille, and Keuka College will extend this to you for up to four years of undergraduate study. If Keuka College offers a financial aid program that exceeds the financial aid you received at Medaille, you will automatically be upgraded and receive the additional aid.
This means it will never cost you more to earn your degree at Keuka College than you paid at Medaille.
Yes. Provided you’re transferring into one of the programs articulated in our teach-out agreement, you will still graduate on your current timeline so long as you maintain satisfactory academic progress at Keuka College.
Of course, you also have the option of changing your major to anything that Keuka College offers. If you decide to do this, we’ll make every effort to ensure you can still graduate on time. An admissions counselor or academic advisor can help you plan this out if it’s something you’re interested in.
Yes. Keuka College has capacity in its residence halls to accommodate Medaille University students. Keuka College will also offer a Mavericks Special Interest Housing community. Participating in this community is optional and it will be open only to students who transfer from Medaille. If you select to live in this community, you’ll be housed on the same floor as other Medaille students.
