Selective Admission Programs

Manhattan Tech has a number of selective admission programs. These programs of study have specific deadlines, prerequisites, and other admission criteria. Learn more about the selective admission programs and admission requirements at Manhattan Tech below.

Admission to the college does not guarantee enrollment in any specific course or program. Selective admission programs have a limited number of openings each year and have specific entry-level admission requirements that must be met before selection for admission to the program. If you are interested in any of the following programs, please visit the department website for admission requirements and application instructions in the downloads section. In addition, you should meet with a Manhattan Tech advisor as early as possible.

Admission to each of the selective admission programs is highly competitive. Therefore, you should review the admission requirements early and make note of deadlines. Specific program requirements, program selection, and acceptance criteria are subject to change at any time and without notice. It is the applicant’s responsibility to keep informed of current program requirements. *The college reserves the right to admit fewer than the quantities specified.
