First-year Applicants

Claiming the championship title with your teammates. Digging alongside your late-night study partners in Cyprus. Presenting your research at a national convention with the support of your professor-turned-mentor. Whatever your dream is, college is about making it a reality. It’s more than a cutting-edge liberal arts curriculum (although you’ll get that here, too). It’s an experience that lasts four years and lives with you forever—and it starts right here, right now.

  • An online undergraduate application using one of the following:
    • Common Application (required for early decision), or
    • Coalition Application
