Binding Enrollment Option
If Minerva is your first choice school, you have the opportunity in any cycle to expedite your admissions notification, receiving a decision in four weeks of completing the admissions process. By selecting Binding Enrollment, you indicate that you are prepared to make an enrollment deposit if admitted, and attend Minerva in Fall 2020.
Note: If you are interested in matriculating in 2021 or later, please complete and submit Part One of the application. We will contact you when the appropriate admissions cycles are open.
The Minerva Schools at KGI reserves the right to evaluate an application and render a final decision even if all pieces of the application have not been received.
Your candidacy is entirely merit-based, with no consideration given to standardized test scores like the SAT or generic essay questions. Instead, Minerva has developed a custom process that allows for both worldwide access and extremely high selectivity.
While exceptional academic performance is crucial, Minerva admissions also seeks raw potential. Initiative, curiosity, and intellectual capacity are powerful indicators of your fit. So too is a desire to improve the human condition and collaborate in solving the most complex problems of our time.
If Minerva is your school of choice, select the Binding Enrollment option. By doing so, you commit to attending if admitted, and you will receive a decision within four weeks of submitting your completed admissions requirements.
We are no longer accepting applications for the Class of 2023.
If you are interested in applying for a subsequent class, you may begin the first part of the application on our website, and we will notify you when the admissions process reopens.
