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. 


  • When can I do an internship at MMC?

    Internships may be obtained through the Office of Career Services, a faculty advisor, or by the student. Many students take internships for academic credit; in order to be eligible to intern for academic credit, students are required to have completed thirty credits (transfer students may apply after one semester of fulltime study at MMC) and have a minimum GPA of 2.8. For more information and a list of where MMC students do internships, visit Student Internships.

  • 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

  • Are most of MMC’s students majoring in theatre or dance?

    While we have a very robust and national reputation for outstanding programs in the performing arts, the majority of our students are not in these disciplines, and all students pursue the Liberal Arts curriculum regardless of major. About 30% of our students are pursuing Theatre and Dance majors, while 70% are in all other programs from Business, to Social Science, Humanities to Natural Science, and Fine Arts. In fact, Communication Arts is the largest single major at MMC. While you will see and hear the performing artists throughout the halls, they are just a bit more obvious to spot which often gives a perception that most students are enrolled in these programs.

  • 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 my advanced placement, international baccalaureate, or other college credits transfer to MMC?

    Students that have taken Advanced Placement examinations administered by the College Board will be awarded credit in accordance with College policy. Six elective credits are granted for the English Language & Composition exam (score 4 or 5). Three credits of electives and three credits of ENG 180 - Narrative Fiction - are granted for the English Literature & Composition exam. The student must have the official score sheet sent to MMC. Additional credits in other academic areas are accepted in a similar way. Eligibility will be determined and credit awarded to the student upon enrollment in the College. Such credit will not exceed a maximum of 30 credits and will not count toward the thirty-credit residency requirement.

    Transfer credit is granted for IB examination scores of 4 or higher on the Higher Level Examinations. No credit is granted for the Standard Level Examinations.

    Students who are fluent in a foreign language whose instruction in that language did not take place in a formal classroom setting, may have their skills and fluency in the language evaluated for possible transfer credit by taking either the CLEP exam or the NYU Language Proficiency exam. Official scores earned must be sent to MMC. Students may earn up to 12 credits for language proficiency, but these credits may not be applied at the 300 Level or above.

    Any course taken at a regionally accredited college or university while in or out of high school will be considered for MMC credit. We simply require an official college transcript to be submitted to the Office of Admission.
