A transitional student is one who has been admitted under the premise that he or she may need additional support in order to be successful in college. Students are classified as transitional by the Office of Admissions.
The overall goals and objectives of the program are to:
Students admitted through the Transitional Acceptance Program fall under the oversight of the Center for Academic Success during their first semester. Students are required to attend a series of workshops through the Student Enrichment Program which will ease the transition to Manhattanville. Students must also successfully complete 12 credits with at least a 2.0 grade point average by the end of their first semester. Although 12 credits must be successfully completed by the end of the first semester, we recommend that students register for no fewer than 15 to 16 credits per semester. If these criteria are met, the student will no longer be considered a transitional student. If these criteria are not met, the student could be placed on academic probation or dismissed from the college.
As a transitional student it is your responsibility to meet the following requirements throughout the semester:
Student Enrichment Program
The Student Enrichment Program consists of a series of workshops designed to ease the transition to Manhattanville college life. Workshops are led by outside presenters, staff and administrators, which span such topics as time management, study skills, exploring community resources, and advising. It is a zero-credit course, but it will appear on your transcript and it is taken Pass/Fail. Students will be pre-registered for this course.
