If you do not have English proficiency but would still like to be considered for admission at Manhattan College, you can apply to our Intensive English Language Program (IELP). In this program, you live on the Manhattan College campus and take English courses with other international students. Once you gain the required English proficiency, you can apply for admission and make a seamless transition into our undergraduate program.
2. Credit Evaluation
Any secondary school transcripts that you submit must be official and translated into English. You can request a course-by-course evaluation of credits through one of the following services:
We highly recommended that you also submit a letter of credit from a United States bank or a certified check from a financial institution in the amount of one academic year’s tuition and fees. This information is required so that an I-20 form can be issued once you are accepted. The I-20 form enables you to apply for an F-1 student visa at a U.S. Embassy or Consulate.
Once you are accepted into Manhattan College and have submitted your enrollment deposit and required documentation, you will work with our Office of International Student and Scholar Services for assistance in obtaining your student visa.
