First-Year Applicant

Students from all over the country, and the world, apply each year to begin their college career at MMC. We hope you will be one of them.

You are a first-year applicant if:

  • Currently enrolled in high school with no college credits; or
  • Currently enrolled in high school with dual enrollment college credits; or
  • Graduated from high school with no earned college credits; and
  • Have never attended MMC (if you previously attended MMC, see Re-admit process

You are encouraged to apply for admission only when you feel most qualified based on the highest SAT or ACT score (we superscore using your highest scores of all test sections), GPA, and other factors that strengthen their candidacy. Applications are reviewed on a rolling basis. 

Students taking the SAT from March 2016 forward must assure all subscores of the new SAT are included. Scores sent directly from the College Board will include the subscores, but SAT scores printed on transcripts without the subscores will not complete an application for review.
