LIU Riverhead offers a collegial, attractive, and stimulating learning environment on the Eastern Campus of Suffolk County Community College. We also provide the outstanding resources of Long Island University, one of the nation’s largest independent/private universities. At this location, we offer opportunities for graduates of Suffolk to continue their education to prepare for careers in two fields: Childhood Education and Communication Studies - New Media.
LIU Riverhead offers two (2) full-tuition Stay on Long Island Scholarships. One scholarship will be offered for the B.S. in Childhood Education program and one scholarship will be offered for the B.A. in Communication Studies – New Media program. We may also offer partial tuition scholarships to others who are recommended by Dr. McKay. The partial tuition scholarships are significant; they can be as high as $20,000 per year. These scholarships apply to fall and spring tuition and require that students take at least twelve credits each semester. The scholarships are renewable for up to three years by maintaining a 3.5 cumulative average.
