Since 1851, the University of Minnesota has educated local, regional, and national leaders in government, health sciences, education, design, technology, and the arts. We are proud to carry on this tradition—helping students achieve their dreams and reach their educational goals.
Students who complete their Freshman application for admission to the Twin Cities campus are invited to participate in the U of M Share My App Program, starting the week of October 15, 2020, via their Application Tracker. By participating in this program, students can also apply for Freshman admission at one or more additional campuses of the University of Minnesota system with no additional application and no additional application fee. Please note that participation in this program does not impact the Twin Cities application process in any way.
The University is proud of the educational opportunities offered on all of our campuses. The Share My App Program simply makes it possible for Freshman applicants to easily apply to the University’s other campuses: Crookston, Duluth, Morris, or Rochester.

We’re a student-centered public university that is proud to feature a liberal arts education. As part of the University of Minnesota system, we have worldwide name recognition, access to state-of-the-art research facilities, and nationally ranked study abroad programs.
Exceptional education and value. Small class sizes that mimic private schools. Research capabilities that only large, public schools can offer.

Abundant study abroad opportunities. Studying abroad is a hallmark of the Morris experience. Nearly half of our students graduate having completed some form of international study, far beyond the national average of 15 percent.
Outstanding merit scholarships. We recognize superior academic achievement with automatic scholarships, full tuition and half tuition competitive scholarships, and significant stipends for scholarly research and activity.
Undeniable outcomes. Morris graduates do great things—95% of them have landed employment or in grad school within a year of getting their degree. Regardless of where their paths have taken them, Morris alumni are more prepared, confident, and well-rounded than when they first set foot on campus. You will be, too.
