These are some of the questions most frequently asked at college fairs. If other questions arise to which you do not know the answer, please direct the student to speak with his/her admissions counselor.
1.When and how should I apply for admission?
Encourage students to apply early. Students may apply after completion of their junior year of high school. Paper applications are available upon request, or students may apply electronically at http://www.mmm.edu
2.How long does it take to learn of an admission decision once an application has been received?
All applications are evaluated on a rolling admissions basis with no specific deadlines. Once we receive a completed application, it takes approximately three to four weeks to make a decision. MMC stops admitting students when all available classroom seats are filled.
3. Does the College accept advanced placement (AP) tests?
Yes. Students may receive academic credit, up to a total of 30 credit hours, for successful completion of AP tests. Credit is determined once an official AP transcript has been received. Typically, a score of 3 or higher is required to earn college credit.
4. Does MMC offer college credits for students completing the International Baccalaureate diploma?
Yes. Students completing the requirements for the International Baccalaureate diploma will be awarded 30 credit hours from MMC. Students in the International Baccalaureate program that do not graduate with the diploma must score a 5, 6, or 7 on the higher level exams in order to be awarded college credit.
5. Does MMC accept dual enrollment credits?
Yes. Students who are taking college-level coursework while they are still enrolled as full time high school students are dual-enrolled. As long as the coursework was completed at a regionally accredited institution and the student earns a grade of "C-" or better in the class, the credits are transferable. Official transcripts from the institution(s) where dual enrollment coursework was completed must be submitted for consideration.
6. As a transfer student, how do I find out how many credits will transfer to MMC?
The credits will be transferable if the student earned a grade of "C-" or better at any regionally accredited institution. Once a transfer student has been admitted, MMC will review his/her transcripts from all prior college coursework. MMC will send a Transcript Evaluation to the student notifying him/her of which credits are transferable and the total number of transfer credits that will be awarded. Remedial courses do not transfer in.
Scholarships and Financial Aid
7. How do I apply for scholarships?
Students are automatically reviewed at the time of admission for eligibility for Marymount Manhattan College academic scholarships. If the student qualifies, the notification of the award will be included on the student's admissions decision letter.
8. What types of financial aid are available?
MMC offers aid based on financial need and academic merit. There are also various departmental scholarships as well as competitive scholarships for talent or special skills. Students interested in additional scholarships can find more information on our website or speak with an admissions counselor. Students must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) to be considered for need-based aid from the federal government and MMC. Students are also encouraged to apply for private scholarships, which may be used to defer out-of-pocket costs. Encourage students to work with their high school counselor to identify private scholarships that fit their individual profiles.
