The Office of Admission offers two methods for candidates to apply for admission: The SAT/ACT Traditional Choice and the Test Optional Admission Choice (graded paper). Applicants are required to state their preference prior to the application review and the decision is non-reversible.

SAT/ACT Traditional Choice:

  • Completed application
  • Official high school transcripts
  • SAT I or ACT scores
  • Guidance counselor recommendation
  • Personal Statement
  • $30 Application Fee (if apply on line, fee is waived)

General Guidelines

While each application for admission is reviewed individually, here are some general guidelines:

The most important criteria in the admission decision are a student's 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. March 1 is the preferred application deadline for first-year students. Applications may be submitted after September 15 and are reviewed on a rolling admission basis. Decisions are released in mid-October. Once we have received your application materials, we will notify you with a decision in two to three weeks. Students choosing the standardized test option are required to notify the Office of Admission on the application. A students' decision is non-reversible and must be made prior to application review.

Personal information sessions and campus tours may be scheduled Monday through Friday throughout the year. Group information sessions and campus tours are offered on Saturdays during the academic year. Call 1-888-KINGS-PA for summer and fall open house dates.
