Future Mariners Can Apply to MCU for Free on Nov. 30 

Marymount California University

Just in time for Thanksgiving, Marymount California University has announced a Free Application Day on Nov. 30 for students applying for admission.

The MCU Office of Admission will waive the $50 application fee for any student who applies for admission on Monday and uses the promotional code THANKFUL when submitting an application.

“Marymount wants to do everything it can to support prospective students and their families navigating the college admission process in these extraordinary times,” said Robyn Jones, vice president of enrollment management. “We’re here to answer questions and encourage students to start early so they have ample time to apply for scholarships and financial aid, and plan for housing. Getting a jump on the application can ensure they don’t miss a deadline or an opportunity.”

Marymount California University offers test-optional admission, allowing students to choose whether they include SAT or ACT exam scores in the evaluation of their application. The Office of Admission will conduct a holistic review of an application, considering academic performance and personal qualities demonstrated in community involvement, extracurricular activities and achievements to determine an applicant’s fit and potential to benefit from opportunities available at MCU.

Nearly 90 percent of students receive some form of financial aid to attend MCU, with award packages averaging more than $21,000.

College-review site Niche recently awarded Marymount California University the safest college campus in California and third safest in the United States on its annual 2021 Safest College Campuses list. The university has also achieved a College of Distinction rating and spots on top liberal arts college lists by U.S. News & World Report and The Washington Monthly.
