Admission Checklist

Completed applications must be submitted, included all required material, five (5) working days prior to the start of classes. Under certain circumstances, the University may institute an earlier priority admission deadline.

  Submit a Minnesota State Mankato application or apply online.

  Submit a $20 non-refundable application processing fee.  

  Request that an official high school transcript and your ACT score be sent to the Office of Admissions. If you are unable to take your ACT, the ACT score requirement is waived until further notice due to COVID-19.
