Transfer Admission

We recommend students fill out an application as soon as possible to receive an admission decision in a timely manner.  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:

  • Official 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.  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.
