  • Payment of the application fee or provision of an approved Fee Waiver
  • Forwarding of official transcripts, including detailed course names, grades, and graduation date for home school students, if applicable
  • Submission of official Test Scores:
    • An official ACT or SAT score is mandatory for applicants from non-accredited US high schools, Home School, or those who obtained the equivalent of a high school diploma through the GED or HiSET exam
    • For all other applicants, the submission of ACT or SAT scores is optional for the 2022 and 2023 cycles. Those indicating a preference for consideration of scores in their Common App must submit official ACT or SAT scores within 30 days of the application submission date
    • Refer to the Test Optional FAQ for further details
