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 non-matriculating students to complete pre-requisites for graduate school or to take courses just for the sake of learning. If you were a good high school student, but had a difficult first semester at college, learn about our reStart program. 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.

  • How can I afford to go to a private school in Manhattan?

    MMC offers many ways to finance your education by offering merit, talent, and need based scholarships from the College. NY State residents may qualify for state aid and US residents may qualify for federal grants, loans, and work study. We do offer a very limited pool of funds for international students, but most of their cost will be their own responsibility as they are not eligible for need-based aid. 85% of our student body receives some form of financial assistance. You can begin to explore you options by completing the Net Price Calculator for First Year Students or for Transfer Students to get an estimate of what you might receive if admitted to MMC or visit Financial Aid.

  • 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.

  • 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

  • How many months are we in school and when do we break for holidays?

    The college operates on a semester basis with fall semester running from September to mid-December and Spring running from late-January to mid-May. There is a January intersession and two summer sessions offered. To see the academic calendar for holidays and other important dates, visit Academic Calendar.
