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 email@example.com.
Step 2. Register for Admitted Student Day
We invite you and your family to drop in on our Admitted Student Day! Intended for fall 2020 admitted students, this year’s virtual event will give you a glimpse of what the Mariner experience will be like and answer the questions you may still have.
Step 3: 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.
Transfers and Graduate Students
All transfers and graduate students must submit an official copy of their final college transcripts for ALL schools attended. This is required before you can register for classes. You can request your transcripts be sent directly from your university or via the following links below.
Step 4: 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. Log in to application status to manage your submitted documents. Receipt of official test scores will be indicated on your checklist.
Step 5: 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 Student Financial Services 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 6: 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 7: 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 8: Complete medical information form
All incoming students are required to submit a medical information form to our Student Wellness Center. This includes your contact information, medical history, immunization records and a copy of your health insurance card (both sides).
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. Our Wellness Portal opens June 1. 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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
Step 9: Register for new student events
The Center For Academic & Professional Success at Marymount California University invites you to take part in a Summer Advising & Registration Day Session! This is an opportunity for all Fall 2020 incoming students to visit MCU, meet one on one with an academic advisor, register for classes, make schedule adjustments, take a placement test and set up a tuition payment plan for the upcoming Fall semester.
Plan to attend new student orientation on August 21 – 23.
New student orientation (NSO) is a mandatory, two-day program that will introduce you to important resources and services. You will learn about MCU specific policies, programs and services to assist you in a successful academic, emotional, cultural and social transition. You are required to attend the entire program and only students who have fully participated in orientation will be cleared to begin classes at the university. Move-in day is August 20. Students who have not signed up for fall classes can register on August 20, as well as schedule a time to meet with an advisor.
All international students must participate in the International Student Seminar on August 20, 2020.
If you are an international student, please visit international student services for information on obtaining your F-1 student visa.
