Transfer Credit Policy

Within a few weeks of receiving an acceptance decision, students will also be informed of the number of transfer credits granted. Credit will be granted only for specific work when completed at accredited institutions whose quality and course content have been approved by the college. Ordinarily, transfer students must earn fifty percent (50%) of the credit necessary for graduation at Manhattan College.  This will normally take four semesters of study in-residence.   “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. Grades earned at other institutions will not be transferred to the student’s record at Manhattan College.  Additionally, there shall be no grades entered in the student’s record for A.P., CLEP or I.B. credits. 

Scholarship Opportunities

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, Dean's or Chancellor's Awards have demonstrated exemplary scores in high school and on their college coursework.  To be eligible for renewal of their academic scholarship, recipients must maintain a minimum GPA of 3.0 while in attendance at Manhattan College.

Financial Aid

  • We require all full-time, domestic, transfer students to file a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) form to be considered for financial aid.  Eligible New York residents should also apply for the Tuition Assistance Program (TAP).  Provided an applicants FAFSA has been submitted and once the credit evaluation is complete, a financial aid package will be prepared.
  • For fall 2015 and spring 2016 accepted students to be eligible for financial aid, a 2015-16 FAFSA may be submitted beginning January 1, 2015.
