Students applying for Early Action will receive a priority admission decision by December 1st. Acceptance to the College is non-binding, but Early Action is encouraged for students that consider Manhattanville College to be one of your top choices and you want to be among the first to receive their admission notification, finalize their financial aid awards, and confirm their student residence space. Students that are not accepted for Early Action will still be considered for regular admission. Early Action is only available for fall applicants.
Manhattanville College operates on a rolling admission basis. This means there is no specific deadline to apply to the College. Priority consideration for admission is given to students that have applied on or prior to March 1st (December 1st for spring applicants).
