UPDATE: Our Fall 2016 Application for Admission is NOW OPEN!
Get A Jump Start — Apply Online Today.
(HINT: Let ZeeMee Help. More Info Below.)

We know that applying for admission at any college can sometimes be a difficult and confusing process.

We've made sure you won't miss out on any important parts of the admissions process with this virtual checklist!

To Apply:

  • Have you taken the American College Test (ACT) or the Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT)?
    We'll need your scores to complete your application.

  • Complete our Application for Undergraduate Admission online. It's simple and free!

  • You'll also need to get us an official high school transcript showing all work completed to date (at least six semesters), all available aptitude and achievement scores, and rank in class.

  • Know someone that can brag on you a little bit? We require recommendations from authorized school administrators or others who can evaluate your academic abilities and personal characteristics. These recommendations prove particularly helpful to the review committee, especially if they help to explain or mitigate weaknesses in the your past academic record.

  • Tell us about you! You’ve given us your test scores, application, transcripts and letter of recommendation — but what haven’t they told us? Get creative: This may look like a personal statement, a video or another letter of recommendation. Or if you really want to make a statement, send us your ZeeMee link! Don’t have one? It’s easy and free to create one at www.ZeeMee.com. As we make a decision on your application, we want to get to know you as well as possible. Use this last requirement to make sure we have everything we need!
