Manhattanville practices rolling admissions.
Admitted students may defer their enrollment for up to one academic year. We will secure your spot and your merit scholarship. Should you attend elsewhere we will need updated transcripts.
This year only, if you decide to defer up to one year at Manhattanville and enroll in classes elsewhere, we will still honor your original merit scholarship as long as you remain in good academic and behavioral standing with that institution. We will need official transcripts from any institution attended after your application to Manhattanville was submitted.
We understand that high schools have adopted a variety of policies in the face of COVID-19. Our admissions office will remain flexible and work with students and counselors to honor the decisions that your school has made during this time.
Update on Commencement:
We recognize how important Commencement exercises are to our community and are actively exploring options regarding Commencement and finding suitable ways of celebrating the accomplishments of our graduating students, both undergraduate and graduate, with our community. We hope to reschedule Commencement at the earliest possible date. Updates will be communicated directly with all pending graduates.
Students who have purchased regalia may keep it or return it for a refund if it is unopened. Students can return their product by following the instructions on www.herffjones.com/collegereturns. Herff Jones will continue to update the detail and FAQs on this website as they get more information.
This is a very challenging time and we appreciate your understanding as we work to protect the health of the campus community. We look forward to honoring our graduates in some form in the future and celebrating their hard work and achievements. Please look for additional communications in the coming weeks regarding this situation.

It is very common to experience anxiety and stress during an international emergency such as this. We understand that your world has been turned upside down, and that change, especially major and sudden change, can cause people to feel unsettled and uncertain. We want you to know that we are all in this together, and we support you.
As we go through this together, we encourage you to take care of yourselves and let us know if there is any assistance you need. This is a stressful time and if you are feeling anxious or sad, help is available. Staff in SHAC are able to provide support to students via telehealth. Information is available on the SHAC web pages. There are still some limitations, however, regarding practicing across state lines. Here is a comprehensive resource:
