First-Year Applicant

Students from all over the country, and the world, apply each year to begin their college career at MMC. We hope you will be one of them.

At Marymount Manhattan College, our goal is to ensure access and equity in our admission process by eliminating obstacles our incoming students may face when completing the application process. Effective immediately, Marymount Manhattan College will be test-optional for our Fall 20’ entry term applicants. During this unprecedented time, when SAT and ACT test sites are not available due to the COVID-19 outbreak, our applicants will no longer need to submit test scores to complete their applications.

 Please note that this new policy will not affect our Fall ’20 scholarship offerings. Currently, this new admission policy applies to domestic applicants only.  We are in the midst of reviewing our policy for international admission. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact the Office of Admission.
