Machon Basya Rochel Seminary, under the leadership of Rebbitzen Aviva Feiner, has formed a partnership with Testing and Training International (TTI) under the leadership of Raizel Reit.

The new partnership will allow MBR seminary girls to obtain a college degree from Excelsior College which is accredited by Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools. The Excelsior College undergraduate degree is widely accepted when applying for graduate programs.

Students can gather undergraduate credits by taking Jewish subject examinations that correspond with MBR’s seminary curriculum. Topics include Chumash and Rashi, shemiras halashon, moadim, Jewish history, Ivris, tefillah, and more. MBR will be facilitating your preparation for many Jewish subject exams as well as proctoring the exam for your convenience.

The MBR/TTI partnership will also allow students to have a local academic advisor who will serve as a guide through their college career. Advisors will tailor-make your degree plan and adapt it to best fit each student’s graduate program goals.

The TTI-MBR Seminary degree calendar is scheduled to allow students to complete a liberal studies degree in a year. The cost of a MBR/TTI Seminary degree is reasonable and there are special discounts for students who join TTI while in the seminary. TTI also offers a number of exciting graduate tracks with career choices that include speech language pathology (class-based in the New York area, online elsewhere), special education (class-based), and mental health counseling (online).
