New students matriculating in August are strongly encouraged to attend Lion Life a one-day event in April, May, or July. Students who attend Lion Life learn about academic programs and student life at Mars Hill; meet faculty members, staff members, and fellow students; and get answers to questions about financial aid, housing, and all manner of student activities. Most importantly, students who attend Lion Life will receive their academic schedule for the upcoming semester at Mars Hill. All new students who do not already have transfer or AP/IB credit for courses in English, Mathematics, and Spanish and/or French are placed into courses that are developmentally appropriate for them, based on their high school records and standardized test scores.
