Academic Access Program

Carson Hall 500


The Program for Academic Access supports students with learning disabilities. The Program is designed to provide a structure that fosters individual growth and academic success. We welcome applicants whose school records and documents evidence the skills, intellectual potential, and commitment necessary to addressing their learning difficulties. With accommodations and multifaceted support, these students will be able to handle the same curriculum as other qualified applicants to Marymount. The Program fee, a cost above tuition, includes tutoring services, assistive technology support and training, counseling/advisement, and priority registration. Interested students should contact the Academic Access Office.

Campus Ministry

Carson Hall 412


MMC’s Campus Ministry provides interfaith programming that serves and supports the students, faculty and staff of the College. Campus Ministry assists in the development of the spiritual and religious life by providing individual spiritual direction/counseling and opportunities for expression of all faith traditions that promote peace and interreligious understanding.

Career Services

Carson Hall 106


Marymount Manhattan’s Office of Career Services assists students and recent alumni in professional development by providing a wide-ranging series of career programming, individual career counseling and access to job and internship listings. Resume and cover letter review, interviewing techniques, networking in person and online, job search strategies, and transferable skills are just a sample of the topics offered by the Career Services staff. These programs are intended to enhance career development and marketability for both students and recent alumni. Emphasis is placed on relating studies, interests and goals while developing a solid career strategy.

At MMC “college” and “career” go hand in hand and our new, college-wide initiative, CityEdge. CityEdge is a shared set of concentrated experiences for all MMC students that provide expanded opportunities for career exploration and professional development while deepening their immersion in NYC. Components of CityEdge include, The New York City Seminars, CareerLab, Signature CityEdge Courses, and Field Experiences.

Career Services offers job listings that are available online through the MMC Career Connection, accessed through Marymount Manhattan’s Career Services webpage. The Office develops and maintains relationships with companies locally and nationwide. Offerings are tailored specifically for Marymount students. Career fairs, site visits with employers, networking and professional development events, and on campus recruitment are ways that the Office connects students with employers. Career development professionals provide individual and group career counseling, career assessment, and graduate and professional school application advisement.


Marymount Manhattan’s Academic Credit Internship Program is administered through the Office of Career Services. Many students participate in this program and take advantage of the numerous professional opportunities available in New York City. The College has close ties with cultural institutions, businesses, government, and media/entertainment organizations in the city. The internship experience connects the student with the professional world in a unique way and builds networks that will be useful in the job search. Internships are an excellent career counseling tool because they help students make informed career decisions as they progress through their college years.

Marymount Manhattan students are eligible to take internships for academic credit if they have completed 24 credits and have a minimum GPA of 2.0. Transfer students are eligible after completing 12 credits with a minimum GPA of 2.0. Academic requirements for an internship vary by department and advisor. Students should consult with faculty and then meet with the Internship Coordinator in the Office of Career Services in order to register for the internship. Internships may be obtained through a career counselor, faculty or by the students themselves. Marymount Manhattan students can also take advantage of internships that are not for credit. Career Services will assist students with obtaining an internship using the Office’s resources which may include resume drafting and review, cover letter writing, and interview skills.

Marymount Muscle is our community engagement initiative that provides opportunities for MMC students to volunteer at various community based organizations located throughout NYC. The primary objective of Marymount Muscle is to provide meaningful community engagement opportunities for all members of the MMC community.

Residence Life

Carson Hall 807


The Residence Life Program at MMC is committed to the overall growth, development, and education of its residents. Our primary goal is to provide a safe, secure and comfortable educational environment while providing residents the opportunities to become involved, exercise their leadership skills and be a part of a residential community. We seek to promote individual growth: Challenging values and attitudes, developing qualities of respect for others, intellectual curiosity, social responsibility, cultural awareness, self-discipline, independent judgment and personal responsibility.

We currently house more than 750 full-time students in residence halls located within a 30-minute commute to the College. Students who wish to live in a College residence hall must submit a housing application and a $500 non-refundable deposit to secure housing for the coming academic year. Marymount Manhattan College expects all students who are granted housing to honor the Resident’s Guide to Community Living and the Housing Contract. Residents are required to remain in the residence hall for the full academic year. Only those who withdraw from the College may be released from their housing contract. Due to limited space, applicants should submit their housing application and deposit by established deadlines.

Student Development and Activities

Carson Hall 807


The Office of Student Development and Activities (SDA) is an integral part of student life at MMC. As part of the Division of Student Affairs, the Office of Student Development and Activities provides students with opportunities for meaningful learning experiences outside of the classroom through social, cultural, recreational, and leadership engagement. These experiences are grounded in the following four areas: Leadership Development, Community Engagement, Student Engagement, and Diversity and Inclusivity. Our office is the center of information on student programs, activities, and involvement opportunities. Meaningful involvement on campus aids in creating a more holistic experience for students, fostering leadership skills and development that students will use throughout their academic and professional careers.

Code of Conduct

MMC has a student Code of Conduct requiring students conduct themselves in a responsible and mature manner on campus. The Code describes the process for disciplinary procedures and enacting sanctions. The Student Code of Conduct is detailed in the “Griffin Guide” the Marymount Manhattan College Student Handbook. Students are responsible for reviewing the student handbook which can be found on our website.

New York State Law §2165 requires college students enrolled in six or more credits per semester and who were born on or after January 1, 1957 to demonstrate proof of immunity against measles, mumps and rubella. Those students born before 1957 do not need to submit proof of immunity, but must submit proof of age. All students enrolled in at least six credits per semester are also required to document a decision about the meningococcal meningitis vaccine. The vaccine is optional; the documented decision is required. Students should upload proof of immunity (the MMC form or valid medical records) to their Slate accounts prior to the start of classes. Failure to comply with immunization requirements will result in an administrative withdrawal from all classes.
