Application Checklist

Use this checklist to be sure you have completed all the steps necessary to be considered for admission to McMurry University.

Application Review

Each application is evaluated based on the academic merits (both high school grade point average and entrance exam scores), extracurricular activities, and personal statement (if applicable). This holistic approach allows McMurry to evaluate students on an individual basis and look for each student’s strengths.

For All Applicants

At McMurry, we want to get to know our applicants better. That’s why we’ve partnered with ZeeMee, a free service that lets you easily add short videos and photos to your college application. Through ZeeMee, you can tell us more about your interests, accomplishments, and challenges you’ve overcome, both inside and outside the classroom. Just create your free profile at and paste your link into the McMurry application. Please note that submitting a ZeeMee profile is completely optional, but it’s also a fun way to set yourself apart and share your story with us. We’re excited to learn more about you!

Be sure to include your correct social security number.

Submit the $25 application fee online (cash or check also accepted).
