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.

Students with superior abilities and outstanding academic backgrounds may file for early admission at the end of their junior year in high school.


How to Apply

1. Complete your online or PDF application to Cabrini University.

2. Request your final official high school transcript to be sent to the Cabrini Admissions Office.
