Admission & Aid


MCLA is full of diverse, talented, and creative faculty, staff, and students. Join our community and learn from our world-class professors, gain experience with internships, see the world with study abroad, and make life-long connections with our faculty, staff, and fellow students.

We strive to enroll qualified students from all over the country, who exhibit the potential for academic and personal growth, and will benefit from a liberal arts education.

MCLA operates on a rolling admission basis for both our Fall and Spring semesters. Our Early Action deadline is December 1st. To ensure the maximum amount of financial aid and scholarships, we encourage students to apply before our priority deadline of March 1st.
