Fall 2020 applicants allowed to submit unofficial test scores for admission consideration

Students planning to begin study at Millikin University in the fall 2020 semester will now have more time to confirm their intent to enroll.

Millikin University is extending the deadline for admitted students to make advance tuition deposits from May 1 to June 1, in recognition of the COVID-19 pandemic and its effect on family finances.

Additionally, due to delays in ACT and SAT standardized testing dates, Millikin University has adjusted its application requirements and review process. Fall 2020 applicants are now allowed to submit unofficial test scores to Millikin for admission consideration. For who students have not yet taken ACT or SAT tests, applications without test information are also being considered and evaluated for admission. 

"Millikin University understands that information or resources may not be readily accessible during this unprecedented time," said Sarah Shupenus, vice president for enrollment and marketing. "We are willing to be as accommodating as possible while students and families navigate their next steps in the college decision process. For some, that may mean we evaluate an application based on unofficial or absent test information. For others, it may mean we delay a tuition deposit deadline or waive the deposit altogether. Whatever is needed, we will be flexible."

Students who graduate from high schools in Macon County or attend Richland Community College will be awarded a minimum $22,000 merit-level Macon Matters Scholarship upon admission.
