You are creative and unique. You want to shout from the rooftops who you are and what you believe. You want to express yourself.

We’re here to listen, closely. 

We want to know about you: the real you. Not just the tests you took or the grades you got. Tell us a story—the story of YOU.

Zero in on a moment in your life that shows how you’ve changed or lets you reflect. Tell us what excites you, what you’ve thought deeply about, what you strive for. Most of all, focus on YOU—how you felt, what you experienced, why you were transformed. It’s you we’re interested in. It’s your story we’re excited to hear.

At MMC, you are not a set of academic credentials. You are a whole person, and you deserve to be seen and known.


Our goal is to ensure access and equity in our admission process by eliminating obstacles you may face when completing the application process. To this end, MMC is test-optional for Fall 2023 domestic applicants and will no longer require an application fee.

Note, this policy does not affect academic scholarship offerings. If you have any questions, please contact the Office of Admission.

Check out these electrifying photos from @mmctheatrearts February production of IN TRANSIT. Be sure to swipe all the way to the end to see two of the musical’s writers (@sara.wordsworth and @jamez111) hanging out with the cast. They were gracious enough to attend the Sat production and stay afterward to chat. They were complimentary to everyone at MMC who put the production together and were impressed because they acknowledge how especially challenging this musical is. Major props to our theatre superstars! #MMCPROUD #GoGriffins #theatre #theatrestudent #NYCCOLLEGES

On this #GoodNewsFriday, we've got some great updates to share about MMC students! ★1-2: Senior BFA Dance major Kayla Kemp ’24 was featured on the "Today" show last week, as part of a flash mob celebrating the 40th anniversary of "Footloose." Fun fact about Kayla: In 2022, she received the prestigious Jeannette K. Watson Fellowship, which is awarded to just 15 undergraduates each year.  ★3: Senior MT major Katelyn Harold ’24 just booked her first regional contract! She'll be playing Francine in "Jersey Boys" at the @EngemanTheater this spring. And, with commencement around the corner, the rehearsal schedule allows her to finish all her classes and fulfill her credits. "This experience would not be possible without the support and training I’ve received throughout my time at MMC, and I’m so grateful," she said. ★4: Junior MT major Andrew Maroney ’25 will be spending the summer in Washington with @numericapac playing Lonny in "Rock of Ages." "It is an absolute honor to join this incredible group of creatives on my first professional contract," they said. "I cannot wait to get going with this amazing cast and creative team in just a few short months!" Congratulations! #MMCProud #GoGriffins

You're watching the evolution of Professor Hallie Cohen's stunning ink painting "One Arte." The work is part of her new exhibition, MI RICORDO: ROMAN WATERCOLORS, on display at MMC's Hewitt Gallery of Art from Feb. 26-April 2. Join us for the opening on Thursday, February 29, from 6-8 pm. The exhibition consists of 12-foot by 5-foot watercolor/ink paintings Cohen produced at the American Academy in Rome in the Visiting Artists and Scholars program. They capture iconic images from the films of Italian directors Federico Fellini, Pier Paolo Pasolini, and Paolo Sorrentino and are accompanied by short videos by the author and essayist Francis Levy. The show's opening reception will include a panel discussion with the artist and MMC Professors Adrienne Baxter Bell and Noelle Griffis moderated by Levy in The Judy (8th floor Carson Hall) from 6:30-7:30 pm. #MMCProud #artinnyc #artistslife #nyccollege
