The Process

  • Apply online.
  • Submit official high school and all college/university transcripts (sent directly from each institution). College coursework from a non-U.S. institution must be evaluated by a Foreign Credential Evaluation Agency.
  • Submit official ACT (#0734) and/or SAT (#5219) results, if entering as a freshman or sophomore transfer student. (Applicants taking the ACT must also submit the ACT Writing Test.) It is recommended that junior and senior transfer applicants also submit test scores.
  • Submit all AICE, AP, IB, or CLEP results if you have earned college credit through one of these accelerated mechanisms.
  • Submit the residency statement.
  • Determine if the major/program of interest has a different application deadline and/or additional admission criteria, i.e., prerequisites, audition, portfolio, etc.
