Applying as a Freshman
When to Apply
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.
