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

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

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

admission scores are required.

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

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.
