Muskingum University Admission Requirement

Applying for Admission

Muskingum University Admission Requirement,  Muskingum University seeks motivated and well-rounded students with demonstrated academic abilities, varied interests outside the classroom, and the potential for continued growth. We select students who we feel will not only succeed, but who will thrive in our community and appreciate our personalized approach to education.

Application Process

Admission decisions are made on a “rolling” basis, that is to say we evaluate application materials as they come to us and make decisions case by case. The Admission Office will act on your application as soon as all materials are on file and will notify you of its decision within a few weeks.

A complete application consists of the following for an entering first-year student:

  • Application form, completed and signed by student
  • Secondary School Report Form, completed and signed by your guidance counselor
  • Official high school transcript
  • Standardized test scores (ACT or SAT)
  • Encouraged but not required: letters of recommendation, a personal written statement, and a recent photo.

Once complete, your application will be evaluated individually and on its own merits. The decision will be based on the combined strengths of your coursework, academic performance, the results of standardized tests (ACT/SAT), and your personal accomplishments outside of the classroom (see guidelines below for more details).

First-year applicants may apply after completion of the junior year in high school. Any student attending a post-secondary institution after high school graduation must apply as a transfer student.

Guidelines for Admission

Listed below are some basic guidelines for admission to Muskingum, but be aware that most entering students have credentials which significantly exceed these guidelines.

Each applicant is evaluated on the basis of the following factors:

  1. Strength of curriculum in high school. Muskingum University defines the core college prep curriculum in high school as four years of English, three years of college-prep math (Algebra I&II and Geometry), and at least two years each of laboratory science (Biology, Chemistry), social sciences (History, Government) and foreign language (Note: ASL is not considered college prep).
  2. Performance in college prep coursework.
  3. Standardized test scores. We accept ACT (composite) or SAT (verbal+math) scores, but do not require both. Only the highest score is used in acceptance/scholarship decisions.
  4. Recommendations. Guidance counselor recommendation is required, while others are encouraged but not required.
  5. Additional consideration is also given to personal qualities and experiences which contribute to the making of a well-rounded student. For example, extra-curricular involvement, community service, and volunteerism are all indicators of a student who would do well at Muskingum.
