The Cabrini College Admissions Office staff evaluates applications for first-year, and full-time transfer undergraduate applicants.
The Admissions Committee accepts students who will benefit from the College's academic environment and educational experience and who will make a meaningful contribution to the College community.
The Committee carefully selects students on the basis of their educational preparation, scholastic ability, personal qualities, intellectual promise, and potential to meet the academic standards of the College.
Applications are reviewed without regard to gender, sexual orientation, race, creed, color, national origin, age, or handicap. All application materials are maintained in complete confidence.
Applicants still in high school or who have never attended another college are considered for first-year admission. Emphasis is placed on the first year applicant's high school record, including course selection, grade‑point average in traditional academic subjects, and class rank. The Admissions Committee also considers recommendations, standardized test scores, outside interests, and activities.
The Admissions Committee acts on an application when all necessary credentials are on file; therefore, students are encouraged to apply early in the senior year. Through this rolling admissions procedure, qualified applicants receive early notification of acceptance.
All acceptances are contingent on the satisfactory completion of the high school program. Some students may be asked to begin on a provisional/part-time basis until evidence indicating likelihood of success in full-time degree studies is presented.
Students with superior abilities and outstanding academic backgrounds may file for early admission at the end of their junior year in high school. The Admissions Committee bases acceptance on a strong three-year high school record, junior-year SAT or ACT scores, and the recommendation of the principal or guidance counselor. The Committee also considers maturity, motivation, and personal qualities.
All early admission candidates must include with their application a statement of their reasons for pursuing an accelerated program and written endorsement from their parents. Students applying for early admission must arrange an on-campus interview with the admissions director.
