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. 

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

     

  • 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.

  • 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.
