How are we serving students during Covid-19?

  • Undergraduate Application Fees are Waived Through May 1, 2020

Given all of the uncertainty during the spread of the COVID-19 virus, Minnesota State Mankato will provide as much time as necessary for students and families to make decisions about their college choice.

  • Flexibility on ACT/SAT Scores

We will make admission decisions based on high school transcripts and GPA for students apply for the fall of 2020 that do not have ACT or SAT scores and are unable to take the test this spring. Students missing test scores will not be required to submit them prior to enrolling for the fall of 2020.

  • Accommodating Pass/Fail Grade Systems

Students will not be penalized in our admissions process if their school moves to a pass/fail grading system for this spring term. We consider cumulative GPA in our admission decisions and will consider a "P" grade as a positive grade trend for the spring of 2020 in our consideration of admission appeals.

We sincerely appreciate your interest in Minnesota State Mankato, as well as your patience and understanding as the situation evolves. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact our Admissions Office at 507-389-1822.
