-Test-optional for Fall 2022.  Mankato is not requiring students to submit ACT or SAT scores for admission or scholarship consideration through the fall of 2022.  Students can be placed into college-level courses based on high school GPA if they do not provide a standardized test score.  If a student submits test scores to us, we will use them in our admission review, but students have the option of whether they submit scores.

-Most of the scholarships for new, incoming first-year students will be awarded through RaiseMe.  Student can find Mankato's opportunities at http://www.raise.me/join/mankato-mnsu

*Seniors have until January 15th to update their profiles and qualify for more scholarship dollars.
