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 quarter of that at other highly-selective institutions, Minerva also offers needs-based financial aid to enable any admitted student to attend.
