Manhattan College’s International Pathway Program (IPP) supports international students in their efforts to improve their English language skills while earning credit toward graduation.
Offered during the Fall and Spring semesters, the IPP provides 18-21 hours of English classes per week in addition to one to two credit-bearing courses that correspond to student proficiency levels. Managed exclusively by Manhattan College, the IPP gives students maximum support at the institution.
The Manhattan College IPP consists of two levels, level 005 and level 006. Each semester-long level is designed to ensure that students have the opportunity to jumpstart their academic journeys at Manhattan College in a supported yet challenging environment.

Students who have an IELTS score of at least 5.5, a TOEFL score of at least 70, or receive a score of at least 3.7 on the Manhattan College IPP Placement Exam and have met all other admissions requirements are eligible to enroll in IPP 006.
