Information For Medaille Students

Confidence. Clarity. Purpose.

Welcome, Medaille Mavericks

Welcome Medaille Students

Continue your passions and interests at NU!

At Niagara University, we understand that it’s been an emotional rollercoaster with the heartbreaking announcement of Medaille University closing. We are here to help make this challenging transition as easy as possible for you. Niagara’s partnership with Medaille University for a Teach-Out agreement allows Medaille’s undergraduate and graduate students to stay on track with their academic path, graduate from Niagara University, and begin your career as you planned.

NU will help you continue to succeed and have incredible experiences. Our university has similar qualities to Medaille, like small class size and campus, and we believe you will fit right in.

What are you looking for?

  • Credits and Outstanding Academic: With our Teach-Out agreement and 80+ majors, NU will ensure that all of your credits transfer and our academic departments will provide one-on-one advisement to ensure you register for the classes you need to finish your degree.
  • Affordability: NU will work with you to obtain a similar net cost for tuition and mandatory fees compared to what you were already committed to at Medaille for the 2023-24 academic year.
  • Small Class Size: With personalized attention, NU’s dedicated team of professors and caring staff will provide you an opportunity to shine.
  • Small Campus: We welcome you to our quiet, beautiful small campus where you will have a sense of belonging. NU is all about community and service – we offer you a chance to find your purpose as you explore your interests.
  • Experiences: You will be amazed by the countless hands-on internship and field experiences offered, as we have relationships with numerous local and national businesses that are exclusive to NU.
  • Social Activities: We have something for everyone with our 100+ clubs and organizations, plus NCAA Division I Sports Teams.

We are ready to welcome Medaille’s Mavericks to campus and empower you with confidence, clarity, and a heightened sense of purpose as you soar into your future as a Purple Eagle.

* Limited Say Yes scholarships available.  Please contact the undergraduate admissions office for more information.
