Undergraduate Application Requirements

It is never too early to “Make Your Mark!” We encourage you to apply early in your senior year of high school. This is especially important to ensure space in some of our more popular programs which fill quickly.

Early Decision Applications (binding), along with all supplemental documents, will be accepted through November 15.

Standardized test scores are optional for students with a 3.3 GPA (on a 4.0 scale) or higher, or 88 numerical average or higher except for applicants to nursing, pharmacy, physical therapy, and education (QUEST program) and any of our honors programs. If your GPA is below 3.3, standardized test scores are required. We accept both the SAT and ACT.

High school transcripts, or equivalent, are required for admission and will be used to evaluate admission.
