Application Process for First-Time Freshmen
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!
Have you visited campus yet? If not, fill out our Campus Visit Inquiry online and you'll see why visiting campus is often the best way to learn if a college is truly right for you.
- Have you taken the American College Test (ACT) or the Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT)? We'll need your scores to complete your application.
- Next, we need a completed undergraduate admission application accompanied by a non-refundable $25 application fee. You can even complete our Application for Undergraduate Admission online!
- 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.
- Finally, we want to hear about you! Provide to us a self-statement, which is an essay describing academic and extra-curricular achievements. This statement also provides an opportunity for you to explain any weaknesses in your academic background.
What are you waiting for? Fill out the Application for Undergraduate Admission online now!
