An education built for global explorers

In an increasingly interconnected world,  it is more important than ever that universities live up to their responsibility: preparing students to thrive and to lead.

Minerva is a truly global university program: beginning in San Francisco, students live and learn in seven of the world's most important cities, gaining first hand experience 

Take the First Step

No SATs or other standardized tests

No application fee

No quotas of any kind


Minerva's unique and exclusively meritocratic admissions process evaluates student potential rather than opportunity. As a result, the Minerva student body is the most diverse in higher education with ~80% of students coming from outside the United States. 

While tuition is already a third of that at other highly-selective institutions, Minerva also offers needs-based financial aid to enable any admitted student to attend. 

We are no longer accepting applications for Fall 2018 enrollment. 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 reach out to inform you when the admissions process reopens.
