Center for Student Success

The mission of the Center for Student Success is to provide services and resources to students that will strengthen academic performance, enhance student satisfaction, and help them realize their educational goals. The ultimate goal of the Center for Student Success is to enable and foster the personal growth and development of each student to allow them to become strong students, persons of upstanding moral character, leaders on campus and in the wider community, and people who welcome opportunities to make a positive difference in the world. 

The following is a brief description of the services offered by the Center for Student Success:

Manhattanville Advancement Program (MAP) - is a scholarship program that provides educational opportunity and support to economically disadvantaged students. The MAP scholarship is a four-year commitment for incoming first semester freshman. Students receive a broad range of services including academic, personal, and career counseling. Beyond the traditional academic focus of most scholarship programs, MAP encourages the development of the student as a whole— intellectually, ethically and socially. Students are encouraged towards these aims by fostering community service, student leadership development, and goal-oriented self-management.

Manhattanville Mentor Program (MMP)- connects incoming Manhattanville students with successfulupperclassmen in order to help them with the transition of college life with emphasis on successful academics and student leadership. Through one on one mentoring and group activities, mentors not only provide support, but create an environment that nurtures and values the diversity of each student. Students are matched through their first year program groups and may also register individually for a mentor to meet with on a weekly basis.

The Transitional Program (TRAN) - any student who is admitted through the Office of Admissions transitionally is automatically enrolled in a 1 credit Student Success course. Students must successfully complete 12 credits with at least 2.0 GPA by the end of their first semester. If all these criteria are successfully met, the students will have completed the program.
