Dedicated to helping you
The MUM Admissions Office welcomes applications any time for our undergraduate, graduate, and non-degree programs. Once you submit the application form, you’ll be connected with your admissions counselor who will guide you through the rest of the process.
MUM has rolling admissions, which means we review applications for acceptance year-round, once the applicant has completed the required materials. For US prospective students, our application is free of charge. If you’re not yet sure whether you want to apply, we encourage you to submit a Request Info form located anywhere on our website, or to attend one of our monthly Visitors Weekends during which you’ll get a clearer sense of whether MUM is the right fit for you. For more information on Admissions take a look at our FAQ below.

All undergraduate programs have entries in mid-August (fall) and early February (spring). Most graduate programs have fall entries, and some will have spring entries as well. Take a look at our academic calendar for more specific info.
We encourage applicants to complete the process prior to one month before the entry, but will continue taking applications up until one week before the entry on a space-available basis. Acceptance decisions are usually made within one week after the applicant’s file is complete, any time of year, so it can benefit the prospective student to apply early.
Most undergraduates receive full financial aid which includes low-interest federal loans, federal grants, and need-based scholarship from the university. Graduate students often receive full financial aid in the form of low-interest federal loans and need-based scholarship. For more info, visit our financial aid calculator here (it’s easy!).
We take up to 70 general transfer credits. The Admissions Office can provide an estimate of your transferable credits based on transcripts provided during the application process.

When reviewing applicants for admission, we consider each prospective student’s overall potential. Factors include:
- academic record
- enthusiasm for learning
- dedication to developing full potential
- extracurricular activities and/or work experience
- recommendations from teachers, employers, or others who know the applicant well
- other information, including answers to essay questions and personal interviews
Applicants who did not complete their high school study are required to submit one of the following:
- General Educational Development (GED) certificate; or
- A certificate of completion of a home-study program if the program is recognized by the student’s home state, or if the program is not recognized by the student’s state, the state must not consider the student to be in violation of truancy laws. Home-schooled applicants must also submit a complete home schooling record.
