Manchester waives enrollment deposit for fall 2021

Manchester University is waiving the enrollment deposit for incoming undergraduate students this fall.

Kaopuiki, Ryon“We understand that students and families are continuing to experience a lot of disruption and uncertainty,” said Ryon Kaopuiki, vice president for enrollment. “We waived the deposit last year, and we heard from many students that waiving the deposit helped their families. We want to make sure the high school class of 2021 has that same opportunity.”

“If you already deposited, that $250 will be a credit on your fall bill,” said Melissa West, associate director for recruitment. “If you haven’t yet made a deposit, you must complete the Intent to Enroll form as soon as you are ready to commit to Manchester.”

This is part of Manchester’s three-pronged approach to make an excellent college education affordable:

• The Indiana Tuition Bridge allows qualifying 2021 high school graduates from Indiana to attend Manchester without out-of-pocket tuition costs for up to four years.
• Tuition is frozen for the 2021-22 academic year.
• The MU Triple Guarantee guarantees that 100 percent of MU undergrads will receive financial aid, graduation in four years or less, and a job or enrollment in graduate school within six months of graduation.

Manchester also added full-ride academic scholarships for multicultural  and honors students.
