Monsters University looks forward to receiving every application, every letter of recommendation, and every excellent essay. MU is a place for self-discovery, curiosity, and scholarship. With unmatched class offerings, a multitude of majors, and a supportive and friendly campus environment, Monsters University is worthy of your attention.
Each year, over 26,000 high school and transfer monsters apply to MU, but only a fraction get admitted. Our methods are strenuous, but our tradition is truly great.
With the top scaring program in the country, along with four other academically rigorous schools (including notable programs in scream energy, door technology, and business), MU's academics are second-to-none.
But life is not lived solely in the classroom. Monsters University offers a holistic training for the mind, body, and spirit -- guiding students of all shapes, sizes, colors, and consistencies toward contributions to their communities, their fields of study, and their world.
While we can't tell you how to get into MU, our admissions team has provided some advice throughout this site on how to put your best foot (or claw, hoof, or flipper) forward.
MU STUDENTS: IN THEIR OWN WORDS
"MU was my dream school. I had many fallback schools, but I secretly hoped I'd get to slither the halls of Monsters U. And now, four years later, I still can't believe it."
-- Snuk McGert, MU senior
"MU is more than a place. It's not even a destination. It's a journey."
-- Kendra Mosch, MU sophomore
"MU is tough. Much tougher than I was used to in High School. There, I could get by being intimidating. At the School of Scaring, I'm forced to be truly frightening."
-- Lars Bvellum, MU freshman
