Welcome back, Griffins!

We’ve updated our Health and Safety Guidelines for the Fall 2021 semester. Visit MMC Onward to get the details.

You are creative and unique. You want to shout from the rooftops who you are and what you believe. You want to express yourself.

We’re here to listen, closely. 

We want to know about you: the real you. Not just the tests you took or the grades you got. Tell us a story—the story of YOU.

Zero in on a moment in your life that shows how you’ve changed or lets you reflect. Tell us what excites you, what you’ve thought deeply about, what you strive for. Most of all, focus on YOU—how you felt, what you experienced, why you were transformed. It’s you we’re interested in. It’s your story we’re excited to hear.

At MMC, you are not a set of academic credentials. You are a whole person, and you deserve to be seen and known.


Our goal is to ensure access and equity in our admission process by eliminating obstacles you may face when completing the application process. Effective immediately, MMC will be test-optional for Fall 2021 domestic applicants. We are reviewing our policy for international admission.

Note this new policy does not affect Fall 2021 scholarship offerings. If you have any questions, please contact the Office of Admission.

We’re excited to have you back on campus and hope you’re ready for the return of in-person events! Today we’re throwing it back to Apple Fest 2019, our annual autumn block party featuring SO much more than delicious fruit — we’ll have fun activities, tasty treats, and opportunities to engage with your classmates. Apple Fest is the perfect opportunity to meet all of the clubs and organizations MMC has to offer. We hope to see you at Apple Fest 2021 in just TWO weeks on September 23.    #MarymountManhattan #GoGriffins #AppleFest

WHAT A WEEK! Our 2021 Welcome Week included residence hall move-in, important information and social events on campus, excursions all across this crazy city, and an official Convocation Ceremony for new students! From a sunset boat cruise, exploring Manhattan’s newest island, and walking across the Brooklyn Bridge (all during a heat wave 🥵), none of this could have been possible without MMC’s Student Life team, Residence Hall staff and RAs, our incredible facilities team, the PEER LEADERS, and so many more. Thank you. We can’t wait for Monday!

Not even a hurricane can stop the Class of 2025! Despite the rain, we moved hundreds of new Griffins into our Cooper Square and 55th Street residence halls this weekend. A huge thank you to our invaluable Facilities team and the incredible group of RAs, Peer Leaders, and Griffin Guides who helped our Residence Life staff move our new group of students in. Not an easy lift! We can’t wait to see some of your newly decorated rooms — tag us in your photos or DM us to be featured on our story 🤩 #GoGriffins #MarymountManhattan

In just a couple weeks, East 71st Street will be bustling with new and returning students living across the boroughs and beyond — and we are SO ready! If you haven’t already, all students are required to submit your vaccination information or receive an approved exemption. This includes you, COMMUTER STUDENTS! We haven’t heard from many of you and this information is *critical* for helping us construct some of our health and safety protocols. Visit the “Vaccination Information” tab at the link in our bio to submit. Email Safety@mmm.edu with any questions. See you soon, Griffins!

Meet this year’s Jump Start cohort! These students are getting an edge on their academics through a seminar course this month with Prof. Julie Huntington. We joined them on a walking tour this morning through Central Park’s historic Seneca Village as part of their “Interdisciplinary Central Park” class. Dr. Huntington is a top-notch guide — we highly recommend checking out this historic landmarked area on the west side of Central Park! #JumpStartMMC #MarymountManhattan #collegeinnyc

Big things are happening on East 71st Street! The 7th and 8th floors have been cleared and demolition is complete, marking a major milestone in our exciting Judith Mara Carson Center for Visual Arts project. While access is restricted due to construction, we wanted to show a few shots from behind the scenes. In just about a year, these spaces will be part of the College’s state-of-the-art creative hub for teaching and learning. Stay tuned for more updates! #mmcvisualarts #visualartscenter #judithmaracarsoncenter #marymountmanhattan #demolition #capitalproject

Stay safe, Griffins! CDC guidance for mask wearing is changing rapidly and cases are on the rise. If you haven’t already, get vaccinated if you can. We want to make sure our campus is as safe as possible for the entire community at the start of fall and throughout the semester. Click the link in our bio for more info on vaccinations and our health protocols! We can’t wait for Welcome Week — tell us in the comments what YOU’RE most excited for this fall at MMC! #gogriffins #MarymountManhattan #collegeinnyc #newyorkcity #college

Ahhh, summer in the city! It might be hot and humid, but there are tons of ways to cool off here in NYC, like an ice cream cone in some Central Park shade! What are some of your favorite summer activities? • • • Students: please be sure to submit your vaccination info before the deadline on August 1. Our vaccination numbers are immensely important to devising our health and safety protocols. Link in our bio!
