We are seeking talented students for the Class of 2021.

The experience is challenging, but applying to Minerva is simple. Complete the online application and share your basic information. Once you submit this form, you will gain access to the Admission Center and a unique admissions process that allows you to showcase your skills and achievements in a unique way not possible in other university applications.

Not only is Minerva's tuition less than a quarter of that at other top universities, but we also provide need-based financial aid through scholarships, work study and loans. All qualified students are eligible, regardless of where you come from.

Upon completing the Sqore challenge and your Minerva application, you will also be considered for a $10,000 need-based scholarship — no additional materials or essays required.
