Do you require SAT or ACT scores?

No, we are test-optional and do not require SAT/ACT scores.

What is the enrollment deadline?

We offer rolling admissions, but many students make their decision before May 1.

What are the application requirements?

To apply all you need to do is:

  1. Submit your application
  2. Have your School Counselor submit your Official School Transcript
  3. Ask a core subject high school teacher or your school counselor to write you a letter of recommendation
Do I need to send all of my college transcripts?

Yes, we will need official copies of your transcripts from every college you have attended since graduating high school. Not only are these transcripts necessary for your credits to transfer if you are accepted, but they also provide us with the ability to review patterns in your academic history over time.

It has been quite a while since I graduated high school. Do I still need to send my official high school transcript? 

Yes. We require all transfer applicants to send their high school transcripts, regardless of length of time since your graduation. We review all applications holistically, and evidence of consistency and/or growth since high school is especially helpful.
