Bay Path Quick Facts

Bay Path University, an independent and not-for-profit institution, was named Among Fastest Growing Baccalaureate Colleges by the Chronicle of Higher Education Almanac, and a member of the Women’s College Coalition. With a main campus and four satellite locations, Bay Path offers undergraduate, graduate (for women and men) degrees, and professional certificates.

Bay Path was established in 1897.

The name is based on a foot path used by Native Americans that was later formalized as a much-traveled commercial route between early Connecticut settlements and towns of the Massachusetts Bay Colony including Boston.
