Admission

The following admission policies and procedures apply to candidates seeking admission to any of the University’s

residential undergraduate programs. Requirements for all graduate programs and the Degree Completion and Online

Programs are referred to later in this catalog.

The Master’s University welcomes applications from students who are on a curriculum plan to complete their secondary

(high school) education within the next twelve months. High school graduates and university students intending to

transfer are also encouraged to apply. In selecting students, the University is drawn to those who present a strong

academic record, show evidence for graduation, articulate a clear testimony of faith in Jesus Christ, share a common

theological perspective, and offer potential to contribute positively to the University community.

To assist in the admission and financial aid process (commonly referred to as Enrollment), each student is assigned to

an Admissions Counselor. Counselors are geographically assigned to prospective students and an interactive territory

map along with biographical information is available online at

www.masters.edu/undergrad.

ADMISSION POLICIES & PROCEDURES

To be considered for admission to The Master’s University, applicants must complete the steps listed below:

1.

Submit a complete “Application for Undergraduate Admission” along with the appropriate processing fee. The

application can be found a

t www.masters.edu/downloads .

2.

Arrange to have official transcripts of all high school and college work sent to the Admissions Office. In cases

where an academic record has yet to be established, a mid-semester grade report is acceptable.

3.

Provide a pastor recommendation. This recommendation should be given to the applicant’s pastor, youth

pastor or fellowship leader. While letters of recommendation are helpful, they may not substitute for the

required recommendation form.

4.

As an objective measure of academic preparedness and potential for college success, standardized college

admission scores are required.

Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT) scores will be based on Critical Reading and Math sub-tests. For those who prefer the

American College Test (ACT), the writing exam is optional.

Applicants must arrange to have their results from either exam sent to The Master’s University. To register, applicants

should use the code 4411 for the SAT and 0303 for the ACT.

Applicants are invited to arrange a campus visit and/or counseling appointment by going to

www.masters.edu/visit.

It

is not necessary to have an application on file to participate and a meeting is not required for admission. Members of

the Admissions Team are available throughout the calendar year with the exception of Winter Break. Please check the

TMU website for school holidays, closures, or conflicts.

Grade Point Average

To determine admission and financial aid eligibility, The Master’s University uses both Grade Point Averages (GPA)

and College Test scores (SAT I or ACT). The Master’s University maintains a policy of utilizing an applicant’s GPA as

it is reported on their official high school transcript. The University encourages applicants to pursue the most

challenging courses possible. When multiple Grade Point Averages are presented, the University selects the academic

(non-elective) GPA that best favors the student. By request, The Master’s University will calculate a student’s weighted

GPA using the UC/CSU GPA guidelines.
