ACADEMIC AWARDS

Admission to MVNU for 2022-23 is test optional. This means we will review applications in a holistic manner using high school GPA and the completed courses to help determine admissions. Because ACT/SAT participation has been impacted by the ongoing pandemic, our academic scholarships will be based completely on the student’s high school cumulative unweighted GPA. No other criteria will be used to determine these scholarship amounts.
