    How to Apply

    The hard work is behind you; telling us all about it is the easy part.

    Ursuline college undergraduate woman thinking

    You worked hard to do your best in your college prep classes and took the ACT or SAT, probably more than once. You applied yourself outside the classroom in the sports, jobs, clubs, projects, and service that mattered to you. We can’t wait to hear your story. Follow three simple steps to apply for admission, and you’ll hear back from us within two weeks:

    1. Submit your application

    Choose Ursuline’s Application or The Common Application. It’s free and fast. Budget zero dollars and fifteen minutes of your time.

    2. Send your official high school transcript

    To be considered official, your transcript must be issued directly from your high school.

    3. Send your ACT or SAT scores

    Ursuline “super scores” both the ACT and SAT, considering only your highest sub scores for admission and scholarships. For us to calculate your “super score,” send all your scores directly from ACT or College Board (for SAT scores) or have your high school send them along with your transcript.

    ACT Code: 3348; SAT Code: 1848

    When to apply

    Ursuline reviews applications on a rolling basis, but we encourage you to apply by our priority deadline of November 1 for best access to scholarships and financial aid.

    How applications are reviewed

    Ursuline College admits candidates who demonstrate potential for success in rigorous academic work. Qualified applicants are admitted regardless of sex, race, religion, color, age, veteran status, national or ethnic origin, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression or physical ability. All applications are reviewed on a need-blind basis, which means admission decisions are based solely on a student’s academic and extracurricular merits, not on his or her family’s financial circumstances.

    Ursuline’s Admission Committee seeks to identify and admit students who will add character to the college community while succeeding academically, and reserves the right to deny admission to any applicant. To make a qualified decision, the Admission Committee will holistically consider:

    • Completed application for admission
    • Evidence of a college preparatory curriculum
      – 4 years of English
      – 3 years of Math (including Algebra II), Science, and Social Studies
      – 2 years of the same Foreign Language
      – 1 year of Fine or Performing Art)
    • Grade point average and grade trends
    • ACT or SAT scores
    • Writing ability, assessed through application for admission personal statement
    • Extracurricular activities and accomplishments
    • Any additional information you provide, such as letters of recommendations or portfolio (optional)
    • Interview with an Admission Counselor (optional)

    While no minimum grade point average, class rank or standardized test scores are specified in this process for admission to most academic programs, these measures must provide evidence of readiness for future success at Ursuline College.
