Minerva for Mathematicians

Within the College of Computational Sciences, students learn to make sense of natural and human-mediated phenomena through analytics, computational methods, and modeling, including how to solve scientific and engineering problems by applying advanced techniques from the modern mathematician's tool set.

Students with an interest in mathematics also have the opportunity to explore areas of particular interest through individually-designed tutorials, concentration courses such as Principles of Advanced Mathematics, Modern Computational Statistics, and Contemporary Applied Mathematics, as well as through a final in-depth Capstone project in an area of the student's choice.

100 % merit-based admission

No SATs or other standardized tests

No personal essays 

No application fee

The experience is challenging, but applying to Minerva is simple. Begin with our online application and share your basic information. You will then gain access to the Admission Center, and an admissions process that allows you to showcase skills and achievements in unique ways.

Minerva's tuition is less than a quarter of that at other top institutions, and need-based financial aid is available through scholarships, work study and loans. All qualified students are eligible, regardless of where you come from.

As an Mu Alpha Theta student, you are also eligible for a $5,000 need-based scholarship. If accepted, you will automatically be considered for this special scholarship.*

Apply now, and begin a new journey.

*If the scholarship is still available, RD II applicants will be considered. All applicants who submit the appropriate forms will still be considered for standard Financial Aid at Minerva.
