Minerva is an intensive four-year undergraduate education designed to prepare you for success in today’s rapidly changing global context. With rigorous academics, small seminars conducted on our proprietary platform, and four years of immersive global study, Minerva is the first university experience built for the 21st century.
Are you ready for a challenge?
Our students are all extremely bright, driven, and curious — innate qualities that are geographically distributed and found at every socioeconomic level. We believe these qualities, in addition to their outstanding academic achievement, deserve to be nurtured. In this video you will learn about three Minerva students and their hopes for realizing a more enlightened, prosperous, sustainable, and peaceful world.
The first part of the admissions process is the application form, which includes basic information about who you are and your academic history. From there, you'll gain access to a personalized Admissions Center, where you will be guided through the remaining steps of a truly unique, holistic admissions process.
• No SATs or other standardized tests
• No application fee
• No ethnic, gender, or national bias
• Low tuition costs
• Need-based financial aid
We are committed to treating every applicant equally, so all admissions decisions are based solely on merit. In addition, all admitted students are eligible to receive need-based financial aid through low-interest loans, work study, and if needed, additional scholarships.
