Monroe College, which has been offering graduate courses in Flushing since 2012, announced this week that it will introduce undergraduate classes in the fall.

Officials from the Bronx college said undergrad classes in psychology and communications would begin the fall semester. Students will have access to Monroe’s shuttle that provides free daily transportation from Flushing and Jamaica to its New Rochelle campus. Access to the main Bronx campus is through the No. 7 subway line.

The Flushing satellite, at 135-16 Roosevelt Ave., now offers MBA courses and ESL classes and will begin classes in the master of criminal justice and master of public health programs this fall.

For students who travel by car to Flushing, Monroe offers free parking at the Sheraton LaGuardia Hotel, a block away at 135-20 39 Ave.

“The undergraduate program is designed to increase access to a quality education and make it easier for local residents, who are limited by various other commitments and time restraints, to obtain a degree,” said Evan Jerome, vice president of admissions at the Flushing site.

Jerome added that students will be able to benefit from the convenient class schedule, easy access to the other campuses and academic and personal support from the Flushing staff.

The undergraduate program will allow students to take two courses a week in Flushing and three classes at one of the college’s other campuses. Online classes are also available.
