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 guided through an admissions process that allows you to showcase your skills and achievements in unique ways. Sharing your ZeeMee profile is just one way to share your story, and celebrate your accomplishments in your application to Minerva.

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.

ZeeMee students like you are also eligible for a $10,000 need-based scholarship. If accepted, you will automatically be considered for this special scholarship.*

*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.
