  • How to Apply

    Applying to Minnesota State University Moorhead is easy. You can submit your application online or by mail. We encourage you to apply for admission as soon as possible---preferably a year before the semester you plan to attend. The earlier you apply, the higher your scholarship and housing priority (which you will need to apply for separately).

    We will review your admission as soon as all of the following materials have been received in the Office of Admissions:

    • Application for admission
    • $20 non-refundable application fee
    • High school transcript
    • ACT or SAT scores

    Please note that you must request that your high school send an official transcript to the MSU Moorhead Office of Admissions at the time of application; you also must have a final transcript sent after graduation. Transcripts sent by fax cannot be accepted. If transcripts are not in the same name as the application because of a legal name change, you must have the name on the transcripts corrected so that the names on the application and transcripts match.
