Manhattan College is an independent, private Lasallian Catholic institution of higher learning that embraces qualified men and women of all faiths, races, and ethnic backgrounds, whether they are beginning as freshmen or transferring.
Established in 1853, the College was founded upon the Lasallian traditions of excellence in teaching, respect for individual dignity, and commitment to social justice inspired by the innovator of modern pedagogy, Saint John Baptist de La Salle.
Students come to Manhattan from all walks of life. What connects them is their decision to make a smart investment in the future. Manhattan College pairs personalized education with big-city opportunity. It is consistently ranked as a college that provides the best return oninvestment.
At Manhattan, an admission counselor is dedicated to transfer students to make the transition smooth and easy. Students can have their unique needs met all in one place while exploring the many opportunities on campus. The credit evaluation process is also done in a timely manner so transfers can begin as quickly as possible.
A heritage of excellence
With over 160 years of history, the College is at the forefront of outstanding comprehensive colleges. Through the years, one constant has guided the College—the Lasallian Catholic heritage upon which it was built. Christian Brothers and layteachers alike have educated generations of leaders with programs in the liberal arts, business, education and health, engineering, andthe sciences and nearly 50 major fields of study for virtually any chosen profession.
Social justice in action
Following in de La Salle’s footsteps, Manhattan College students actively define their commitment to social justice by trading their traditional lifestyles for immersion and service experiences around the city, country, and world.
Each year, Campus Ministry and Social Action (CMSA) runs its L.O.V.E.program (Lasallian Outreach Volunteer Experience), which gives students the chance to travel to some of the world’s poorest areas in New Orleans, Kenya, Ecuador, the Dominican Republic, and West Virginia to volunteer with people of different socioeconomic backgrounds.
Closer to home, students involved in the Lasallian Outreach Collaborative (L.O.Co.) participate in ongoing, sustainable weekly service work throughout the year with various local community organizations, working to create lasting social change by responding to the expressed needs of the College’s community partners.
A campus to call home
The tight-knit College communityis composed of over 4,000 students. With a 12:1 student-faculty ratio,our professors know students personally and care about their success. The majority of students live on our traditional collegiate campus, which is just a subway ride from the city center. In addition, many students take advantage ofthe College’s New York City location and intern at some of the world’s leading companies.
Transferring made easy
Manhattan College’s rolling admission process allows students to transfer in both the fall and spring semesters. Each week, transfer applicants can also participate in Transfer Thursday, a unique campus visit opportunity that provides prospective students the chance to take a campus tour, meet with an admission representative, and receive an instant admission decision prior to the end of their visit. Once students have been accepted, the straightforward credit evaluation process enables students to make the most of the credits they have already taken, and a financial aid package is prepared to evaluate for academic scholarships, need-based financial aid, and state and federal grant, loan, and work-study programs.
Students who want to live on campus are guaranteed transfer housing to make the move worry-free, and most choose to live in either suite- or apartment-style on-campus housing.
