Congratulations! You have been accepted!

Have you already decided that Mars Hill University is the place for you?

  • Submit your $250 Advance Tuition Payment. Freshman and Sophomores are required to live on campus and housing assignments are determined on a first-come, first-serve basis. After receiving your financial aid package, you will receive an email communication with instructions on how to pay the Advance Tuition Payment through Self-Service.
  • Watch your email for your login information for all of your Mars Hill accounts (housing, self service, email).  Once you have accessed your accounts, complete the Housing and Meal Plan Application or if you will be a commuter, fill out the Commuter Application.
