Why you should choose MCU


If you’ve already decided to become a Mariner, welcome! We look forward to helping you develop the skills and experience invaluable to your future success.

Let’s get started
  • Activate your Net ID to access the MCU student portal

MCU’s student portal is where you will access program information, confirm enrollment, review financial aid, register for classes, check grades and audit your degree progress. You can also update any changes to your mailing address, phone number or email address to make sure you receive important email from Marymount. You can find log-in instructions in your admissions letter.

  • Accept admission and reserve your spot

Log in to the student portal to accept your offer of admission and pay the $200 deposit. This commitment deposit is applied toward your tuition and fees and is not refundable after the confirmation deadline. You can also call us at (310) 303-7335 to bill it to your credit card.

  • Apply for housing

Marymount has a two-year residency requirement, with a few exceptions. Learn more about living on campus and our unique residential experience. Submit the housing application for the Villas through the student portal and pay the $175 non-refundable housing application fee by credit card or call (310) 303-7335.

Complete your Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) application to see if you qualify for financial aid. Marymount’s school code is 010474. We strongly encourage you to submit the FAFSA even if you aren’t sure you will be eligible. Visit MCU’s Office of Financial Aid to learn more about the cost of attending, types of aid and scholarship options.

  • Sign up for Admitted Student Day

Join us for a special event on campus in the spring in your honor. It’s a great opportunity to learn more about Marymount and decide if we’re your next home away from home. Watch your email!

While not required for admission, SAT/ACT scores are recommended if you’re interested in MCU scholarships.
