Learn About Admission

The policy of Mount Union is to enroll applicants who are best qualified to participate effectively and creatively in the life of the total academic community. Admissions decisions are based on past academic achievement as well as potential for future growth. Also considered are participation in high school and community activities, talents, interests, and motivation.

A candidate may apply for admission after completion of six semesters of high school study. The University follows a policy of rolling admission with the first decisions released in October. Though early application is encouraged, selection is made on the basis of records and credentials rather than on the basis of priority of application.

Students may enroll in the University at the beginning of any semester or the Summer Session. Applications should be submitted no later than the week prior to the start of each academic session. However, on an exceptional basis, the Office of Admission may give consideration to qualified applicants whose complete credentials are received by the fourth day of the first week of classes.
