Virtual Experiences

The University of Mount Union is committed to the safety and well-being of our students, faculty, staff, and campus guests. We are closely monitoring the most recent news pertaining to the COVID-19 outbreak and understand the concerns related to attending large, public events.

While there are no confirmed cases of COVID-19 at the University of Mount Union, we are following the recommendations of Ohio Governor Mike DeWine, which are aimed at slowing the speed of the virus, by canceling all events and campus visits. Despite the cancellation of campus visits, we are committed to continuing to connect with you throughout your college search. Please utilize this website to learn about how to stay connected with us, along with the answers to frequently asked admission questions.

  8. My ACT or SAT testing day was canceled. Can I still apply?
