Since 1897, Bay Path University situated in Longmeadow, MA.
The American Women’s College is a bold, new initiative in education. Launched by Bay Path University, it is the first ever all-online program designed for adult women.
For over 117 years, Bay Path has been a leader in women’s higher education. A private, accredited and not-for-profit institution, Bay Path has graduated thousands of strong women to positions of power.
Now we have taken all of that expertise – and re-designed it for the online space. We have made it possible for busy adult women to take college courses and earn their undergraduate degree. Our students find it empowering to work with other women like themselves. They push, challenge, support and encourage each other. It is no wonder that our completion rate is more than twice the national average. To see all of the reasons, click here.
We are so committed to creating leaders, we have actually made it part of our syllabus. We provide a unique Women as Empowered Learners and Leaders (WELL) Program. Students take part in a shared learning experience that weaves together courses, community service, career preparation and leadership skills.
We understand that for one reason or another, you may not have earned your college degree. That’s OK. Our mission is to empower all women. We believe by making college education more accessible, we will enable more women to earn their degrees, improve their careers and help their families.

“I wondered at the start of my online classes whether I was going to feel part of a community of learners. I believe the all-women environment led to a culture of openness and sharing. I feel some of the women in my class have become good friends and I am looking forward to meeting them face to face at graduation.”
“This program was perfect! I could fit it
into my life. I was still able to work full time
and be involved with family events.”

“This program allowed me to learn at the pace that
worked best for me. When an idea or concept challenged me,
I could slow down. When I felt comfortable, I could move
along more quickly. I had lots of interaction
with other students. I loved this part.”
Joanne G. ’13
“Going back to school after five years can be a daunting thought,
but within my first few days all my fears were replaced
with excitement and drive. Online learning was the right fit for me
because of the ease of their online portal and
the wonderful women I met along the way.”
