The past few years have seen applications for admission increase significantly. Thus, our entering freshman must climb an ever-higher achievement threshold to gain admission. Significant numbers of our student body are first-generation college students, and it is essential to the mission of the College to maintain a diverse, qualified student body.
Scholarships and financial aid widen opportunities for students and help Manhattan College compete for the best students. Our commitment to ensuring that all young minds have access to a first-rate education is inspired by John Baptist de La Salle, who took on the monumental task of educating the poor instead of enjoying a comfortable life in the church. De La Salle heeded the call, and we hope you will too. Read about students who have benefited from scholarships and financial aid.
