There is no dipstick for manual transmissions. You remove the fill hole bolt and stick your finger into the hole to check the fluid level.

Open the top filler plug, use a flex hose funnel and fill it up with manual transmission fluid (picture below) until fluid starts to flow out of the hole you're filling. Then install the filler plug again when the fluid stops flowing out.

You can also fill it through the VSS

You certainly can do this, but doing so makes it difficult to know whether you have over- or under-filled the transmission with MTF.
