Follow these easy steps toward enrollment at MU!
Submit Your Enrollment Deposit
The enrollment deposit is the first and most important step toward your enrollment at Methodist University and allows you to begin completing enrollment tasks on the Monarch Way. It’s super easy — just log in to the myMU Portal and select the Enrollment Deposit tab. For the fall semester, May 1 is the priority deadline. For the spring semester, the priority deadline is December 1.
If you haven’t visited campus, you should make plans to do so as soon as possible. At MU, visits are set up on an individual basis. You (and your family) will have the opportunity to meet one on one with an admissions counselor and take a campus tour with one of our students. We also have a great virtual campus tour available for you.
Complete your FAFSA
If you will be applying for financial assistance, log in to studentaid.gov and complete the FAFSA form for your entry year as soon as possible. The MU school code is 002946. The FAFSA form is the single application for all need-based financial assistance awarded by the federal government, the state, and by Methodist University.
Check your MU email account regularly
Shortly after you pay your enrollment deposit, you will be assigned a Methodist University email account. It is important that you check this account regularly (at least every 10-14 days) as this will become the primary communication tool used by admissions, financial services and academic and career advisors.
Follow the Monarch Way
For a smooth transition to Monarch Nation, follow The Monarch Way, a comprehensive checklist of everything you need to complete before classes begin. The Monarch Way will be available on the myMU Portal in April for fall entry and November for spring entry once you submit the enrollment deposit.
Attend New Student Orientation
New Student Orientation is a great way to kick off your MU career, have some fun, meet classmates and get an overall feel for what MU is all about.

Fayetteville & The Surrounding Area
Fayetteville is one of North Carolina’s largest cities, with more than 200,000 residents, but it retains a friendly, hometown atmosphere. Unlike many schools located in more rural, isolated towns, you’ll have access to hundreds of cultural and entertainment perks often found in bigger cities. Our campus is just a stone’s throw away from many iconic stores and restaurants – and we’re about 10 minutes away from a thriving Downtown Fayetteville. Explore all the Fayetteville area has to offer.
