WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW
ABOUT STUDENTS APPLYING TO MANCHESTER UNIVERSITY
It is free and easy to apply to Manchester! A student can apply online two different ways: our online application and the Common Application.
For either application, we will need a writing sample to make sure the student is able to handle the rigors of collegiate writing. We can accept any writing sample, either one from an English class or the topic on either application.
We also will need official transcripts from the high school or any previous college work. We can accept these electronically, via Naviance, Docufide, or Parchment. If you use another online submission site, contact a Manchester admissions counselor to make certain we can receive it.
Manchester University requires an official SAT or ACT score, either directly from collegeboard.com or on the high school transcript. To share with students, our code for the SAT is 1440 and the ACT it is 1222. To search for other codes, visit here for the SAT and visit here for the ACT.
FINALLY (AND THE MOST IMPORTANT PART FROM YOU)
WE NEED A GUIDANCE COUNSELOR REFERENCE.
We have a PDF form you can print, fill out and send it to us. You can send it via fax (1-260-982-5239), e-mail it, or mail to the Office of Admissions. If you have access to Naviance, Docufide, or Parchment, we also can accept a reference from those regarding the student’s preparation for higher education.
Once we receive all that information, we will contact the student in about two weeks regarding their admissions status. Because we are on a rolling admission basis, we will admit students year-round and help them start to discover how successful they can be here. Juniors can apply the summer before their senior year and can be admitted as early as Sept. 1.
Once each new year begins, the Office of Admissions prepares to help families with the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Our FAFSA code is 001820 and admissions counselors would be more than happy to help any student or family as they begin the process. Refer them to our Office of Student Financial Services for some general information or call the Office of Admissions at 1-800-852-3648. You, a student, or a family member can also set up an informational session to ask any questions about the FAFSA.
If you have specific questions about a document or a student’s status please call us at 1-800-852-3648.
