School Notes:

  • Marymount Manhattan College was founded in 1936 by the Religious of the Sacred Heart of Mary as a two-year women's college and a New York City extension of Marymount College, Tarrytown in Tarrytown, New York. In 1948 the College moved to its present location on 71st Street and became a four-year bachelor degree-granting college; the first class graduated from MMC in 1950. In 1961 MMC was granted an absolute charter as an independent four-year college by the Regents of the University of the State of New York.
  • MMC consists of two buildings on 71st Street in Manhattan between Second and Third Avenues, filled with study lounges, science labs, classrooms, studios, galleries, computer labs, club meeting rooms, performance venues - the works. Think of it as a vertical approach to college.
  • MMC offers special programs such as an Academic Year Abroad, Performing Arts in London, and cooperative degrees with Polytechnic University, St. John's University and Pace University. Academic departments also make extensive use of the plethora of resources available to us through the affiliations of our faculty and to our New York City location.
  • Marymount Manhattan College is accredited by the Middle States Association of Colleges and Secondary Schools. It is independently chartered to grant degrees by the University of the State of New York.
