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 to transfer back to their home institution.

  • 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. 

  • Does MMC have an Honors program?

    At MMC, we have multiple honors programs and organizations to suit the many ways our students achieve. From honor societies to Honors Day, we offer several ways to challenge and recognize our most exceptional students.

  • 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.
