General Recommendations & Requirements for Admissions
Standardized test scores are not an admissions requirement as of 2005. Incoming students can apply online through either the Common Application or Coalition Application. They must provide a high school transcript and two letters of recommendation, one from a guidance counselor and one from a teacher.
Test scores, personal interviews, and supplementary materials such as writing or art portfolios are welcome but optional and will play less of a role in the admissions decision than a student’s academic background.
