Former students who have been away from Maranatha more than four consecutive semesters must follow the new student admissions process. If you are returning to Maranatha and have attended within the last four semesters, please follow this abbreviated admissions process. The admissions committee reviews your pastoral reference, academic transcript, discipline record, and any outstanding balance owed to Maranatha. You cannot begin classes with an outstanding balance due.
Complete your application
During the application, you’ll update personal information, other school experiences, and a short essay which includes what you have been doing since you left Maranatha. The online application can be saved and returned to whenever you want, but most students complete this step in less than one hour.
Skip the $50 application fee
Your application fee is waived.
Deliver character reference
One character reference must be completed by your pastor. If you are related to the pastor, a deacon should complete the form and mail it to Admissions. If you supply us with email addresses for those individuals who will complete references, we can send convenient e-reference forms. For those individuals without email addresses, you can deliver a print version of the reference. The individual completing the print version of the references should mail them directly to Maranatha.
Mail Admissions your transcripts and transfer reference forms
Send all college transcripts to admissions. If you attended a Christian college since Maranatha, complete the transfer reference form also.
Receive a decision from Admissions
The admissions committee reviews your pastoral reference, academic transcript, discipline record, and any outstanding balance owed to Maranatha. You cannot register for classes with an outstanding balance due.
