Steps to Becoming a Valiant

We look forward to seeing you and welcoming you into the Manhattanville family! 

The first part of getting you started at Manhattanville is to complete the Academic Schedule Preference Form and Orientation Sign Up. The Academic Schedule Preference Form allows for our Academic Advisors to help create your class schedule. You can access these through your applicant portal. 

Academic Schedule Preference Form and Orientation Sign Up

If you are planning to live on campus you will need to submit your housing deposit through your applicant portal. Once you submit your housing deposit you you can complete your your Housing Application.

The Housing Application is a legally binding agreement for the entire academic year (Fall & Spring Semester).

Completing the housing application is important to help us place you with a roommate that will compliment how you live. If you want to room with a specific individual both individuals will need to name each other on their Housing Applications.  

Submitting your required health forms is a critical step in starting at Manhattanville. 

More information is forthcoming.  

Be sure to click on each link below. This will bring you to webpages that have forms to be completed regarding Student Financials and Billing, FERPA Waiver, and Health Insurance waivers (if you do not need college health insurance). You can also contact Student Financial Services to set up a meeting with a student account manager.
