First Year Application Procedures

To apply for admission to First Year standing, the applicant must submit:

1. An Application for Admission accompanied by the $50.00 non-refundable fee. The application fee is waived for students who submit their applications online via the University's own online form or the Common Application. Both on-line applications are available on the admission web site at

2. An official secondary school transcript showing grades and courses from the freshman year through the first trimester or semester of the senior year. For students applying Early Action, the transcript should be complete through the junior year of high school.

3. The School Report Form (counselor recommendation) completed by the secondary school guidance counselor or a teacher of an academic subject (i.e., English, math, history, science, etc.)

4. Standardized test results from the SAT-I or the ACT with the writing section . Students are strongly advised to take one or both of these tests early in the spring of the junior year. This allows for an opportunity to re-take the tests, if the applicant desires, in the fall of the senior year with sufficient time to meet application deadlines.
