ADMISSION STANDARDS

Our admissions philosophy is very simple – we look at each applicant individually as a whole because our mission is to educate the whole individual. There are no stated minimum scores for GPA or test scores. We strongly consider GPA and class rank as evidence of past academic success and extracurricular activities with emphasis on leadership, volunteerism, service and commitment as evidence of the breadth and depth of involvement and predictor of contributions as a member of our campus community.

SELECTION

Selection of students admitted to the University is based upon the credentials submitted by the applicant. The University will give careful consideration to all applicants who submit their credentials before the deadline date. Applicants for regular admission will be notified of their admission status within three weeks of receipt of all required forms and information until the available seats are filled.

APPLICATION DEADLINES

  • Fall acceptance – students must submit applications by August 1
  • Spring acceptance – applications must be submitted by December 1
  • Summer acceptance – applications must be submitted by April 1

International Applicants are encouraged to apply a lot earlier than the deadlines shown.
