We recommend students fill out an application as soon as possible to receive an admissions decision in a timely manner, in addition to a credit evaluation. Credit evaluations are sent separately within two to three weeks after the acceptance decision has been offered. We require all full-time, domestic, transfer students to file a FAFSA form to be considered for financial aid. Provided an applicant’s FAFSA has been submitted, and once the credit evaluation is complete, a financial aid package will be prepared.
Important items to consider when transferring to Manhattan College include:
Fall 2013 Transfer Admissions
- We do not have an application deadline for the fall 2013 semester; Manhattan College operates on a rolling admissions basis.
- Housing is available for fall transfer students.
- To be eligible for financial aid, a FAFSA must be submitted. The Manhattan College school code is 002758. To file a FAFSA, please visit fafsa.ed.gov. Financial aid packages are sent out after credit evaluations are performed.
- Interviews are not required, however, appointments may be made to speak about the application process with an admissions counselor online or by calling 718-862-7200.
- Credit evaluations are performed only after students are accepted. Credit evaluations are completed by the assistant dean for the school to which a student has applied. The Admissions office does not perform immediate credit evaluations. It can be helpful to include course descriptions for classes taken, and in progress, for a faster credit evaluation. Credit evaluations are mailed within two to three weeks after an acceptance has been offered.
- All accepted transfer students will be considered for academic scholarships during the application evaluation process. Students will be notified in a separate mailing if they receive a scholarship within two to three weeks of their acceptance decision. Transfer students who receive one of our Presidential or Dean's Awards have demonstrated exemplary scores in high school and on their college coursework. Scholarship recipients must maintain a minimum GPA of 3.0 while in attendance at Manhattan College in order to renew their academic scholarship.
- Official high school transcript
- Official transcripts from all colleges attended; minimum GPA to transfer is a 2.5
- A personal statement outlining goals and reasons for transfer
- SAT or ACT score(s) for students applying with less than 30 credits
- Letter of recommendation
- AP scores if taken
- $60 application fee
The admissions committee will make a preliminary evaluation of a student’s record. The applicant will then be notified of their admissions decision. Students will also be informed of the number of transfer credits granted within two to three weeks once an application decision is made. Ordinarily, transfer students must earn 50% of the credit necessary for graduation at Manhattan College. “P” grades may be accepted for credit but only if they represent a “C” or better as defined by the regulations of the institution of origin. All of the above credentials must be on file in the Admissions office before an application is reviewed for admission.
All acceptances for students who have work in progress at another college or university are conditional upon successful completion of work in progress without withdrawals and with a minimum index of 2.5. Transfer Articulation Agreements do exist with a number of two-year colleges, including Rockland Community College, Westchester Community College, Nassau Community College, Hudson Valley Community College, Bergen Community College and Morris Community College.
