How Do I Select an Application Round?

You may apply to the application round that is most convenient for you. We give equal consideration to all applications regardless of the round deadline for which they're submitted. However, if you are interested in financial support or on-campus housing, plan on applying by our January deadline.

How Do I Apply for Financial Support?

MTM considers all admitted students for merit-based financial assistance.

If you're a domestic student, however, you may also want to apply to the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) to receive financial aid from the U.S. federal government. For the 2019-20 MTM cohort starting in the fall of 2020, you must submit your FAFSA any time between October 1, 2019 and June 30, 2020. For other forms of financial support, please check here.

How Do I Apply for On-Campus Housing?

You must stubmit your Statement of Intent to Register via the online application to be eligible to apply for Graduate Student Housing.

Graduate student housing is available in San Clemente Villages for single graduate students, and is guaranteed as long as they adhere to application procedures and deadlines. For more information about procedures and deadlines, please click here.
