Marymount Manhattan

Admissions

Be bold. Be different. In other words, be yourself. While your academic performance is important, we consider all of your strengths. So tell us everything. We’re listening.

Whether you’re in high school, hoping to transfer, or an international student, we can guide and support you throughout the application process. We also welcome nondegree-seeking students to complete pre-requisites for graduate school or to take courses just for the sake of learning. And summer visiting students may enroll in courses while on break to transfer back to their home institution. Get a head start and take courses at MMC in your junior or senior year of high school

We offer rolling admissions, and we’re ready when you are. 


  • What are the minimum requirements to be admitted?

    MMC does not have a stated minimum as we have a holistic review process. This means that we will look at many factors for admission, such as GPA and level of courses you have taken, SAT/ACT, recommendation letters, how well you write based on the writing section on the SAT/ACT test scores and/or your essay, and overall interest in MMC.

     

  • Is the campus safe?

    The College is located on the Upper East Side of Manhattan and the 55th Street Residence Hall is in Mid-town, both very safe and populated areas. At Marymount Manhattan College, the safety and well-being of our students, faculty, staff and guests are of primary importance. We employ a substantial, well-equipped, full-time staff of security officers, all licensed by the State of New York. Our security staff is on-duty 24 hours each day, seven days per week. Visitors to the College and its residence facilities will notice security personnel stationed at all main entrances. Our security administrators have developed a close working relationship with the 17th and 19th Precincts of the New York City Police Department. With that said, we realize that this is a major metropolitan area and take time to orient our students with ways to be “street smart” and always be prepared in any situation. Our safety record is very good and we invite you to review our Campus Security Report and our Crime Statistics

  • What are the application deadlines and how long does it take to get a decision?

    Admission to MMC is on a rolling basis which means that there is not a set deadline to submit your application. We do encourage you to apply early or before the end of your Fall semester in high school. Transfer students should apply as soon as they begin their final semester in their previous college. Once all required documents are received, it will take 2-3 weeks to receive your decision or a request for additional information. 

  • How big are classes?

    Our classes average about 18, with the largest class being only about 30. Some programs cap classes at 10 or 12. MMC does not have any large lecture halls and professors teach all classes instead of teaching or graduate assistants as in many large universities. The student to faculty ratio is 18:1.

  • Will I fit in?

    MMC is a very diverse student body with students from many different ethnic backgrounds, parts of the country and world, religions, lifestyles, and interests. The College is a microcosm of New York City itself as we embrace diversity in every way. In addition, our students tend to be very independent, driven, curious, civically and socially concerned, and especially creative. We do not have a traditional campus as we are located on the bustling island of Manhattan, so we are not for everyone. But, for a small group of students, we are a perfect fit.
