Application Sections:

Your application consists of 4 sections. The list below is for your reference. Each tab contains instructions specific to that section.

  • Main Application Form: Provide your basic information (contact, school, family). Complete this form first. This section must be completed at one time (may be edited later if necessary).
  • Short Answers: Where we get to know YOU. You can work on this section throughout the application period. (TIP: Compose your answers in your favorite word processor to save a copy, and paste into the form.)
  • Academic Records
    • Transcript: Request official transcripts from your school (for 9th, 10th, and 11th grades, if applicable)
    • Standardized Test Scores: Provide scores for any standardized tests you have taken (none are required; may be updated any time during the application window)
  • Teacher Evaluations: Request 2 or 3 teacher evaluations, and check your status page to make sure they arrive by the deadline. We must receive 2 evaluations, the third is optional. See the FAQ for our preference for whom you ask.
Your status page will be updated after the admissions office reviews each section of your application for completeness.

  • Start with your Main Application form. This form collects basic information about you that will help us match your documents to the correct application.

  • You do not have to complete the application parts in a particular order. You may re-visit and edit any tab at any time before the application deadline.
