Thank you for considering Manhattan College.  We appreciate the effort it takes for international students and their families to navigate the school-choice process and we are here to assist.

We are a rolling admissions office with two intakes (fall and spring).

Completed international applications can receive a decision and a scholarship award within five days of submission.
