Application Requirements

Generally, you must have a minimum 2.5 GPA at the college or university where you are currently enrolled to be considered for admission at Manhattan College. However, our admissions standards will vary depending upon the space availability in a specific school or major.

In order for your application to be considered, you must submit the following:

  1. Official Final High School Transcript
    • A high school transcript is required even if you have already completed a two- or four-year bachelor's degree.
  2. Official College Transcript
    • If you have attended more than one college, you must submit a transcript from each institution.
  3. List of Current Courses
    • If you are currently enrolled in college courses when you submit your application, you must provide a list with the name of each course.
  4. SAT and/or ACT Scores
    • You must submit SAT or ACT scores only if you have completed less than 15 college-level credits.
  5. Recommendation Letter
    • One letter of recommendation from a high school teacher, college professor or employer is required. You are also permitted to submit an additional character reference.
  6. Personal Statement
    • You must submit a brief personal statement. This statement should be 300-650 words.
  7. $75 Non-Refundable Application Fee

Important Note Regarding Transcripts

Failure to submit all final transcripts will result in a hold on your registration and may jeopardize financial aid awards.

All transcripts should be sent via mail or electronically to:

Manhattan College
