The New York College of Health Professions is a private not-for-profit college chartered under the New York State Board of Regents.[1]

History[edit]

The New York College of Health Professions was chartered in 1984 at Muttontown (the portion of the village which is served by Syosset Post Office). In 2004 the college was awarded a patent for Acupressure Clothing (U.S. Pat. 6,763,525 B1).[2] It first applied to the New York State Board of Regents and the Commissioner of education for accreditation in October 2004. By 2006 it had 818 enrolled undergraduates. Throughout late 2006 and early 2007 the school was evaluated and the board voted unanimously to support accreditation for a three-year period ending in 2010. The board set for conditions that renewal would require the institution to strengthen governance, hire experienced faculty and add resources to the institutions research function.[3] Today, the university is still accredited.[4]
