You can start your application now. But if you have any questions about the admissions process, feel free to contact your admissions counselor. Once you submit your application, please send us your high school transcript and official ACT/SAT scores.

After Acceptance

After you’ve been accepted to MNU, here’s what to expect:

  • Submit $200 confirmation deposit. This goes toward your tuition balance!
  • Submit the Housing Form
  • Submit official, final high school transcripts with graduation date and class rank from your high school (first-time students only)
  • Submit any college transcripts if taking dual credit, or Advanced Placement scores

Once these items have been checked off, you can begin registering for classes, and getting dorm and roommate assignments. You’re one step closer to becoming a Pioneer!

Admissions Deadlines

Here are a few important dates to remember as we walk through your admissions process

  • January 1: FAFSA is available to fill out. Register for your FAFSA ID and get started.
  • March 1: Priority deadline for financial aid.
  • April 1: Kansas residents deadline for FAFSA to be considered for Kansas Comprehensive Grant

Unless you or your parents are unable to complete tax returns by the priority date of March 1st, it is best if you do not estimate income information (Helpful tip: Use the “Will File” option instead if you have to!). If you are unable to complete federal tax returns before March 1st, please contact the Office of Admissions.
