Beginning with the Fall 2012 semester, Manhattanville undergraduate students will now declare or change their academic programs (i.e. majors & minors) and/or change their academic advisors by completing the Undergraduate Declaration/Change of Program, Minor or Change of Advisor, and Anticipated Graduation Date Form. The completed form must be submitted to the Registrar.

What is a Porfolio?
The Portfolio is designed to aid students in planning and assessing their own academic careers, seeking advice of mentors, considering life and career goals beyond graduation, and highlighting their best academic work for various audiences within and beyond the College.
An e-Portfolio is an electronic presentation of your work and yourself. It is an opportunity to develop a social and intellectual identity on the web. Click here for instructions on how to set up your account.
It involves an additional optional review of qualified Portfolios by the Board on Academic Standards (BOAs) following First and Final Portfolio Review. Although, BOAs invites certain students to submit for Honors, students may also take it upon themselves to submit their Portfolio for Honors Review. BOAs looks for exceptional breath in liberal arts, an excellent Program Evaluation Essay and advanced examples of academic achievement. Portfolio Honors are announced at Baccalaureate and students receive a notation to this effect on their transcripts following Final Portfolio Reviews.
To officially change your advisor in your major, the Undergraduate Declaration/Change of Program, Minor or Change of Advisor Form must be completed and submitted to the Registrar's office for processing. This form must be signed by you and your new primary advisor and your new co-advisor.
Manhattanville's Grading and Grading Policies uses standard letter grades. Each letter grade is assigned a numeric grade point value to allow computation of a student's Grade Point Average (GPA). For example, if you complete 5 courses, each conferring 3 credits, grades A, B+, F, C, and D, you can compute your scholastic index as follows:
Divide the total grade point value by total credits. Do not include "W" and "P" grades (from pass/fail grading option) in the attempted credits.
Manhattanville maintains the following letter grading system:

Class Deans are available to meet with students in their designated class year for the purposes of general program planning and academic advisement, assistance with registration procedures and providing guidance and clarity in explaining the College’s academic policies. Class Deans also operate as an important liaison among students, faculty members, parents and various College offices and constituencies. It is the Class Deans’ special responsibility to monitor the progress of all students in academic difficulty and provide support and referrals to appropriate College resources. A student’s designated Class Dean hears appeals for exceptions to specific academic regulations and authorizes late adds, drops or course withdrawals and Incompletes when appropriate and justified.
