APPLICATION GUIDELINES FOR FRESHMEN

The most important criteria in the admission decision are the four-year academic record, GPA, strength of curriculum and overall rank in class. Recommendations, the personal statement, co-curricular activities, leadership and community service help to complete your profile.

We will consider your SAT/ACT scores if you choose to submit them, but they are not required. If you are not submitting SAT/ACT scores, an official graded paper from either junior or senior year and sent by your high school guidance office is required.

Applications may be submitted after August 1, but committee review does not begin until September 15 and are reviewed on both early action and rolling admission basis.  Once we have reviewed your application, we will notify you within one to four weeks depending upon early action or rolling admission choice.  March 1 is the preferred application deadline for first-year students.
