Our Admissions Committee is interested in knowing about you, including your academic interests and life outside of the classroom. The application is used for this purpose. Additional information—your transcripts, essays and letters of recommendation—helps them evaluate you on your own academic merits. Incomplete applications will not be reviewed.

Students may apply online through the Common Application. A nonrefundable $70 processing fee (or fee waiver obtainable from your high school counselor) is required of all applicants.
