  2. If you will be a freshman, request that your official high school transcript be submitted directly from your high school or testing center to the Admissions Office. The initial high school transcript sent for admission should be complete through the end of the junior year and followed by a final transcript upon completion of all high school requirements. An admissions decision will be made with a sixth or seventh high school semester whenever possible with the understanding that a final academic transcript will be submitted upon graduation. A final high school transcript must show the date of graduation and be signed by an official at the high school. If the final transcript is not received by the first week of the student’s attendance at Mayville State University, subsequent registrations may not be allowed and students will not receive federal financial aid until a final official transcript is provided. All freshman applicants graduating from high school in 1993 and thereafter must verify that core curriculum requirements have been met in order to be admitted to the University.  If you have an official GED Report, have both the official GED Report and your official high school transcript sent directly to the Admissions Office.

    If you will be a transfer student, request your official college transcripts be submitted directly to the Admissions Office. If you are currently attending another college or university, an in-progress official transcript will be used for admission with a final transcript required after grades and/or degree are posted. NOTE: Failure to list all colleges, universities, technical, proprietary or other schools attended (beyond high school), whether or not credit was earned, may result in dismissal, loss of credit, or both.

  3. Submit official test results from either the American College Test (ACT) or the Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT). Applicants should take either test before high school graduation. High school counselors or principals should be contacted for information pertaining to registration and score reporting of these tests. MSU ACT code is 153212 and MSU SAT code is 6478. If 25 years of age or older, applicants may receive ACT or SAT exemption status by virtue of age, previous college experience, or due to extenuating circumstances.
  4. Complete and return the University immunization form to the Admissions Office on or before beginning classes.

This is required for students enrolled in any on-campus class(es).
