Step 1: Confirm your enrollment

Submit your $200 commitment deposit to accept your offer of admission and reserve your spot at Marymount. You can do this online using application status, in person or by calling an admissions representative at (310) 303-7311. Once you pay your commitment deposit, you’ll be able to apply for housing and register for classes through MCU’s student portal using the credentials assigned within application status. (Transfers must submit their transcripts before they can register.) If you need help accessing your student portal account, please email

Step 2: Submit final transcripts

Freshmen and Transfers

All undergraduates (freshmen and transfers) must submit an official copy of their final high school transcripts for ALL schools attended. This is required before your financial aid award can be confirmed. You can request your transcripts be sent directly from your high school or electronically through Parchment. For priority registration, please submit these documents no later than January 3.

Step 3: Submit official test scores

Although not required for admission, test scores can increase your chance of receiving additional aid (if eligible) and may count as course credit. Please submit official ACT, AP, IB and/or SAT test scores by January 3. Log in to application status to manage your submitted documents. Receipt of official test scores will be indicated on your checklist.

Upload test scores


Step 4: Review your financial aid

To be considered for all Marymount, state and federal resources for which you might be eligible, please complete your Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) application by the deadline. Marymount’s school code is 010474. The Office of Financial Aid will notify you when your award is ready to be reviewed. You must accept or deny your financial aid award through the student portal. If you have questions, you can meet with a financial aid counselor to discuss your package.

Step 5: Set up a tuition payment plan

Marymount offers a tuition payment plan to split your college bill into equal monthly payments. Since the installments are smaller, paying tuition may be easier and more convenient than making a single, larger lump-sum payment. There is an $80 enrollment fee for the semester plan. Visit the link below to get started. Tuition is due no later than January 17. Alternatively, you may pay your balance in full.

Step 6: Apply for housing

All incoming freshmen are required to live at The Villas for their first two years, with a few exceptions. While transfers do not have the same residency requirement, there are available units for upperclassmen. Learn more about living on campus and our unique residential experience. Use the link below to apply and pay the $175 housing deposit. If you want to opt out of living on campus, you may complete the housing exemption listed on the housing application.

Step 7: Complete medical information form

All incoming students are required to submit a medical information form to our Student Wellness Center by January 17. This includes your contact information, medical history, immunization records and a copy of your health insurance card (both sides).

Medical information form

All full-time students are automatically enrolled in MCU’s Student Health Insurance Plan (SHIP) when they submit a commitment deposit. Full-time domestic students who are covered under their own health insurance plan can waive MCU’s Student Health Insurance Plan. If you are interested in doing so, please complete the SHIP waiver by 5 pm on January 17. International students are not eligible to waive the Student Health Insurance Plan. Failure to waive will automatically enroll you in SHIP. Waiving does not guarantee approval, so check your MCU email. For more information, contact the Student Wellness Center at (310) 303-7244 or email

Step 8: Register for new student orientation

Plan to attend new student orientation on January 10. Move-in day is scheduled the day before on January 9. Orientation is mandatory for all incoming students in order to complete the enrollment process. Students who have not signed up for spring classes can register on January 9, as well as schedule a time to meet with an advisor.
