The Visiting Scholars year was created to ensure students are not forced to curtail their learning. The Minerva academic model is distinctly capable of supporting these students with its completely redesigned class experience, based on best practices from the science of learning. Not only are Minerva courses extremely rigorous, but the Forum™ virtual learning environment offers highly engaging, live, video-based instruction, without the need for physical classrooms. Fully Active Learning enabled by Forum is now the gold standard for synchronous, discussion-based seminars taught by outstanding and experienced professors in every class session.
Students accepted to a leading university with comparable academic rigor to Minerva for Fall 2020 matriculation will automatically qualify for the Visiting Scholar year by providing basic identifiable information and proof of admission. Additional information and a list of pre-approved schools can be found in our FAQ. Students from universities that are not pre-approved will be admitted on a case-by-case basis depending on the rigor of their curriculum and English language proficiency.
Visiting Scholars year enrollment is available for both the fall semester and the full 2020-21 academic year. Students who enroll for just the fall semester are eligible to extend their studies, if needed.
