We hope your years at MMC are full of exploration — of your passions, new NYC neighborhoods, potential career paths, and ways to make an impact. Below, you’ll learn more about our events for incoming students — Accepted Students Days, Griffin Weeks Orientation, and Welcome Week — and you’ll find our New Student Checklist.
There’s a lot to be done between now and orientation. Be sure to visit your Admissions Portal often for pending requirements.
Future Griffins Days
Future Griffins Day provides the opportunity to explore all that MMC has to offer before making your final decision. Students will have the opportunity to interact with staff, faculty, and future classmates. Join us on Saturday, March 11 or Sunday, April 2.
This event is exclusive to Fall 2023 Accepted Students. You have to be logged in to your Admissions Portal to register.
Move-in days, special receptions, social activities, and more await during our annual Welcome Week. This is your chance to get acquainted with the campus, form bonds with fellow students, and experience the excitement of New York life before classes begin.
If you want to live in one of our residence halls, be sure to submit your deposit, fill out your pre-registration form, and then complete your housing application. Remember that it’s first-come, first-served, so you’ll want to apply sooner rather than later.
Complete a pre-registration form on your admissions portal to indicate your academic interests. First-year students will also complete a self-directed writing placement form. A member of the Student Success Advising Team will register you for classes based off of your pre-registration form and send you instructions on how to access your schedule.
To be considered for need-based financial aid, be sure to submit your Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) beginning October 1 for the following fall semester. You must be a U.S. citizen or permanent resident to apply. Our school code is 002769.
Make sure your bill is paid or payment arrangements have been made by August 5 (January 2 for spring entrants) so you can start classes and — if you’ve chosen to live in one of our residence halls — move in.
Full-time students are automatically enrolled in our health insurance plan and a health insurance charge will be added to your tuition bill. If you have qualifying health insurance of your own and would like to waive out of our plan, you must complete an online waiver form by September 15 (February 15 for spring entrants). This step can be completed after you are registered for classes, starting July 15 (January 1 for spring entrants).
