In careful response to the impact of COVID-19, admissions into MVNU for the 2021-2022 academic year have been adjusted to be 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 will be impacted this year, our academic scholarships will be based completely on the student’s high school cumulative weighted or unweighted GPA. No other criteria will be used to determine these scholarship amounts.
