A little history
The Monroe School of Business was founded in 1933 by Mildred King in the West Farms section of the Bronx and was named after the fifth President of the United States. It started with seven women in four small classrooms. Tuition was five dollars for one evening or ten dollars for a week of classes. It took students three or 6 month sessions to earn a certificate. In the 1960s an IBM division with keypunch machines were added. In 1972, Monroe officially went from a business school to an accredited junior college in where it earned the right to grant associated degrees (AOS). More classrooms were added on Morris Avenue and in 1977, the West Farms facilities were closed and all Monroe programs were consolidated in the Fordham Road Area. In the 1980s, South Hall opened in the Bronx and Monroe celebrated its fiftieth anniversary and was authorized to grant a second associated degree (AAS). In 1990, the Middle States Commission on Higher Education granted Monroe accreditation. The name was changed from Monroe School of Business to its current name Monroe College. In this year, the college joined the National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA).
