Minerva's unique and meritocratic admissions process evaluates student potential rather than opportunity. As a result, Minerva's student body is the most diverse in higher education with ~80% of students coming from outside the United States.
Tuition is already a fraction of that at other highly-selective institutions, and Minerva offers need-based financial aid to enable all admitted students to attend, regardless of where you come from.
