Enrollment Deposit

Applicants admitted to the University as undergraduates must pay a nonrefundable enrollment deposit of $200 to indicate acceptance of the offer of admission. The deposit will be applied to the payment of fees when the student enrolls. Students who demonstrate financial need may qualify for assistance to cover the amount of the deposit.

Application Procedures

Freshman applicants must submit (1) an official score report from a national administration of the SAT I or ACT; (2) an official high school transcript showing rank in class and grades at least through the junior year; (3) a completed freshman application form, which will be mailed to the applicant after the University has received the admission test scores; and (4) the application fee or fee waiver documentation.

Applicants may designate the University as an SAT I or ACT score recipient at the time of testing or request that scores be sent to the University by writing directly to the testing agency. A photocopy of test results is not acceptable for admission purposes.

Admission Tests

The Scholastic Assessment Test I (SAT I) of the College Board or the ACT Assessment of the American College Testing Program is required of all freshman applicants who graduated from high school after the summer of 1956. Applicants are not required to take SAT II: Subject Tests for admission purposes, but must take the SAT II: Writing Test and Mathematics Level I, II, or IIc Test prior to registration to determine placement in rhetoric and composition and mathematics courses.

The test schedules printed in this section indicate the dates the SAT I, the SAT II: Subject Tests, and the ACT Assessment are offered. Applicants who choose to submit the SAT I for admission purposes may not take the SAT II: Subject Tests on the same date. Test scores are received by the University (if the student designates the University as a test score recipient) about five weeks after the test date. Since the receipt of an official report from the testing agency begins the application process, applicants should take the SAT I or the ACT no later than December of their senior year. Prospective students who have disabilities may make special testing arrangements by contacting the appropriate testing agency.

Information and registration materials may be obtained from the student's high school counselor or by writing to
