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 — Griffin Days 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.
Attend Griffin Week Orientation
Experience MMC as a Griffin! Griffin Weeks are designed to help you navigate life as a first-year student. During this virtual orientation, you will have the opportunity to meet your professors and staff advisors, interact with classmates and learn about life on campus with Residence Life, Campus Safety, Student Activities, and more!
Save the Dates (Registration Coming Soon)
Academic Griffin Week: Mon, June 28 - Thurs, July 1
Student Life Griffin Week: Tues, July 13 - Thurs, July 15
Get Ready for Welcome Week
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 the pre-registration form to register for classes and to schedule an advisement appointment if required. You will review and finish the registration process during Griffin Days Orientation. Course registration will take place in June for students starting in the fall, or in January for spring entrants.
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).
