Pace University, founded in 1906, is a private, comprehensive university. It has a proven history of offering students the opportunity to succeed. Indeed, the power of Pace is best reflected in its motto: Opportunitas. Pace offers a quality education that is both affordable and accessible. Last year, approximately 90% of the freshman class received some type of financial aid, and over 60% received direct scholarships or grants from Pace. Combining theory and practice, Pace provides each student with the power of experience. Faculty with practical experience teach courses based on today's realities. Qualified students gain their own practical experience through its Cooperative Program, where they work in paid, part-time positions related to their major. The Pace Co-op Program is the most extensive program among four-year colleges and universities in the New York metropolitan area. Pace students also enjoy the freedom of choosing between two campuses: in New York City and in Pleasantville/Briarcliff, in suburban Westchester County, with the Graduate Center in White Plains, offering a total of over 100 majors and over 3,000 courses of study. Opportunity, experience and freedom of choice make up the essence of a Pace education.
