Transfer Requirements

Deciding to transfer is a big decision. Our admissions counselors will help you to determine if Manhattan College is a good fit for you, and how your credits may transfer.

Important items to consider when transferring to Manhattan College include:

  • If you have graduated from high school and completed any course work at a two- or four-year college/university, you will apply as a transfer student.
  • Housing is available for transfer applicants.
  • Transfer applicants for graduate programs should speak directly with the graduate admissions staff.
  • Timeline & Deadlines

    Because transfer admissions operates on a rolling basis, there is no set application deadline. We will continue to accept transfer admissions applications through the first week of classes during the semester when you enroll.

    Admission Decision Notifications:

    Fall Applicants  December - August
    Spring Applicants September - January

    If you apply in-person during a Transfer Thursday session or other appointment with our admissions counselors, you can typically receive a same-day decision. If you submit your application online, it generally takes 2-3 weeks for you to be notified of acceptance or rejection.

    If you are currently enrolled at another college or university, your acceptance as a transfer student to Manhattan College is conditional upon successful completion of your classes with a minimum 2.5 GPA.

  • 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


    Special Requirements

    International Students

    International students have additional requirements regarding transcripts and language proficiency. See the International Students page for details. 

    Radiological & Health Professions 

    After an initial academic review, applicants to the Nuclear Medicine Technology, Radiation Therapy Technology or Radiologic Technology programs may be required to interview with the program coordinator. Space is limited in these programs and students are encouraged to apply prior to May 1 for the fall semester and before November 15 for the spring semester.

     

  • Campus Visits & Interviews

    Transfer applicants may visit campus any Monday - Friday, but we encourage you to join us for an upcoming Transfer Thursday to receive a same-day admission decision while you’re on campus.

    An interview is not mandatory, but it is highly recommended for all transfer applicants. If you are not able to come to campus for an in-person interview, we can do your interview remotely using Skype.

    To schedule an interview, call the Admissions Office at 718-862-7200 or email us at admit@manhattan.edu.

  • Transfer Credit Policy

    Within a few weeks of your acceptance to Manhattan College, we will notify you of how many credits from your previous college will transfer in. Our credit transfer guidelines are as follows:

    • Credit will be granted only for specific work when completed at accredited institutions whose quality and course content have been approved by Manhattan College.
    • Typically, students are not allowed to transfer in more than 50% of the credits required for graduation. You must take at least half of your courses at Manhattan College which will normally take four semesters of full-time study.
    • “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.
  • Scholarships & Financial Aid

    Scholarships

    All accepted transfer students are considered for an academic scholarship. You may be eligible to receive a scholarship if you have exemplary scores in your high school and college coursework. Scholarship award notifications are mailed home starting in March for fall entrants and November for students enrolling for the spring semester.

    To be eligible for renewal of your academic scholarship, you must maintain a minimum GPA of 3.0 while attending Manhattan College.

    Financial Aid

    To be considered for financial aid, you must be a full-time student and live in the United States. To apply for financial aid, you must submit the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) form, which is available on January 1 each year. Eligible New York residents should also apply for the Tuition Assistance Program (TAP).

    After we review your FAFSA and credit evaluation, we will prepare a financial aid package and notify you of the award via postal mail.

    Learn more about the financial aid process in our Paying for College section.
