Undergraduate Overview


When to Apply

Generally, you may apply as early as one year in advance of your proposed enrollment.

If you file an application with all required credentials and the application fee by the priority date, you will receive full consideration for the semester requested. If admitted, you will be invited to an orientation program during which you will register for classes. If you file an application after the priority date, you will be considered on a space-available basis and if admitted, you will likely attend a later orientation session and register for classes during the last days of registration. After the priority date admission may close without advance notice. The Web site will contain current admission review status for each approaching term.

Letters of Admission

With the admission letter, students receive information about placement testing,  New Student Orientation reservations, transfer of credits, and a temporary parking permit is enclosed. All beginning students are admitted to University College, where they attend the New Student Orientation program, enroll in a first-year seminar, work with an advisor, and learn about University College support services such as the Bepko Learning Center. Some students, particularly those with outstanding high school records, will be granted dual admission to University College and the academic school offering their desired major. Some transfer students are also admitted to University College and remain there until they complete the necessary prerequisites for their program of study.
