Manhattan College announced on April 23, 2024 that it entered into a Principal Articulation Agreement with Rockland Community College (RCC) to enable RCC students to transfer credits seamlessly to Manhattan College (the College). The purpose of the Agreement is to “…establish collaboration between RCC and Manhattan College to promote degree completion and facilitate the transfer process.” Students from RCC who satisfy the stated requirements in the Agreement will be able to matriculate into Manhattan College with a junior year standing.

Further, those students who have earned a 3.0 GPA or higher will be automatically considered for merit-based scholarships at Manhattan College.

We look forward to having them join our community on campus in the very near future.”

“Rockland Community College is equally pleased to have entered into this Articulation Agreement with Manhattan College,” said Lester Sandres Rápalo, President of RCC. “It provides our students a seamless transfer to an academically excellent institution where they can continue their studies in business, engineering, or the liberal arts and sciences.”
