MBU Online Admission

Students with a cumulative GPA of 2.0 or higher on their most recent college transcripts are automatically accepted into MBU Online pending they have no academic, disciplinary or criminal issues. Students with a 1.7 to 2.0 could be offered conditional admission to the University pending approval by committee. Students with a 1.7 or lower will be sent to a review by the MBU online admissions committee to evaluate if the student can be offered “special student status” or would be denied admission to the University. 

Students with no prior college experience who have a cumulative GPA of 2.6 on their high school transcript are automatically accepted into MBU Online pending they have no academic, disciplinary or criminal issues. Students below 2.6 will be sent to a review by the MBU Online Committee to evaluate if the student can be offered conditional admission, “special student status” or would be denied admission to the University. 

Important Information 

  1. Students must be academically and socially eligible to return to the school they are currently attending or in which they were previously enrolled. 
  2. Mary Baldwin has an articulation agreement with the Virginia Community College System. 
  3. Students with less than 24 hours of college-level course work will be evaluated for admission based on their academic performance in high school as well as their college-level course work. 
  4. If a student enters with 18 or fewer credit hours, the student’s academic work will be evaluated to determine the appropriate orientation course for the student. 
  5. Official Mary Baldwin University transcripts will show course titles, grades, and credit hours earned on transfer credit for which MBU has comparable courses; however, grades from transfer coursework are not factored into the GPA. In evaluating graduation requirements, the Registrar will determine if certain transfer credits can be used to satisfy general education requirements. All students must satisfy the core requirements and other graduation requirements set forth in the catalog under which they enter Mary Baldwin University. 
  6. All students who self- acknowledge through the application that they have committed a crime will be flagged for review by committee prior to being accepted into the University.
