For Prospective Students
When can I apply for admission for 2021 semesters?
I'm a senior and can't take my SAT or ACT as planned, what do I do?
Most importantly, don't worry. Test scores are not needed to apply for admission or competitive scholarships. We will make an admission decision based on your high school transcript. Homeschool students may be asked to provide official test scores or other documentation before we can make an admission decision. We encourage you to apply for admission without test scores on file. Ask your high school to send a copy of your official transcript so we can review the courses you've taken. We understand your grades will look different for spring semester 2020. All students who wish to be considered for merit-based scholarships must submit official test scores or an essay.
I'm a junior and can't take my SAT or ACT as planned, what do I do?
Most importantly, don't worry. We totally understand. Applications for fall 2022 will open in late June 2021. You do not need test scores on file to apply for admission.
Do I need test scores to apply for scholarships?
Test scores are not needed to apply for competitive scholarships. You may apply for all scholarships, including the Leading Scholar Award, Husky Innovation Leaders Award, FIRST Robotics (for FIRST or VEX participants), College of Business Impact Scholarship, Visual and Performing Arts Talent Award, and Summer Youth Scholars Award without test scores. You must have an application for admission on file by the scholarship deadline to receive full consideration for the award(s).
My high school gave Pass/Fail grades for the spring 2020 semester. Will you accept this?
Absolutely. Regardless of major you apply to, we will accept any grading system your high school used during the spring 2020 semester.
Will you recalculate GPA to accommodate for pass/fail or credit/no-credit grades?
No. We will use the calculated GPA provided by your school on your official transcript. If you have both a weighted and unweighted GPA, we will use the highest provided for both admission and financial aid consideration.
Will SAT or ACT scores be required for 2021 applications?
Test scores are not needed for students applying for fall 2021 admission. Homeschool students may be required to submit official test scores or other documentation. All students who wish to be considered for merit-based scholarships must submit official test scores or an essay.
Has my summer camp been canceled?
