Please read this page completely prior to completing the application form.
The Office of Admissions operates on a rolling admissions basis. Review of completed applications begins October 1 and applicants will be notified of their admissions status within six to eight weeks. High school students may apply after the completion of their junior year. For many applicants, first semester senior grades (available in January or February) are requested by the Office of Admissions. The request of these grades will delay the final decision until the second semester of the senior year.
All documents should be forwarded to:
Carefully complete the online application form. This information is used to create a permanent record for each student. It is important that proper spelling and capitalization be used. The most desirable time for freshmen to apply is between August and January 1, but applications will be accepted after this date.
The $25 application fee must be paid with a credit card at the time the application is submitted. If a student completes the paper application, the application fee is $40 and must accompany the application.
To ensure timely processing of your application, your guidance counselor must submit your official high school transcript, which must be signed and dated by the guidance counselor. Your grade point average and class rank should be included, if computed by your high school.
An essay and letters of recommendation are optional but preferred.
The official results of the SAT from the College Entrance Examination Board or the American College Testing Program (ACT) should be forwarded directly to the Office of Admissions. (Scores reported on official high school transcripts or received directly from the College Board are considered to be official.) For students who will be applying for the 2007-2008 academic year, the Office of Admissions will accept both the old and the new SAT. For the new SAT, we will consider the Critical Reasoning (Verbal) and Math scores. The Writing score will not be used in the admissions decision process.
Note: Senior year SAT or ACT test scores take at least four weeks to arrive in the Office of Admissions and an additional two weeks must be allowed for posting and review.
