Dates and Deadlines

MMA offers two application deadlines and corresponding notification dates for first-year students. All information used to make an admission decision must be received by the following deadlines:

Early Action Regular Decision
Application Deadline November 30* March 1*
Notification by February 1 by April 1
Enrollment Deposit Deadline May 1* May 1*

*MMA reserves the right to :

  • close applications earlier than posted due to the number and quality of applications
  • refuse enrollment deposits and suspend acceptances after May 1 due to enrollment limitations

Applicants are encouraged to apply in early fall as certain specialized majors may reach capacities prior to the application deadline.

Early Action is for the student seeking early notification of acceptance to the Academy.  All application materials must be received in Admissions by November 30. Early Action applications with strong packages will receive an acceptance on a rolling basis no later than February 1 and acceptance as an Early Action applicant is non-binding. Early Action applicants whose academic profile requires more information for evaluation will be deferred to Regular Decision.

Students who complete a Regular Decision application, are deferred from Early Action, or whose application is not complete for Early Action by November 30th, will be notified (admit, waitlist, or deny) on a rolling basis by the first week of April.

Due to the March 1st deadline the last SAT (MMA Code 3505) test that will be accepted is January of the application year, the last ACT (MMA Code 1648) test that will be accepted is February of the application year.  Note: Not all States offer the ACT test in February.

Rolling Decision may be available for applicants at the end of the cycle if space is available.
