Application deadlines

Review our application deadlines for important spring, summer, and fall dates.

After reviewing your application, we will let you know if we require additional information. We must receive any requested items by our application deadlines. Because we typically require four to six weeks to review all applications, we strongly encourage you to apply well in advance of the deadline.

AP Credits

If you are taking any Advanced Placement (AP) classes, use this website to see how your credits will transfer.

If you want to transfer your AP credit, request for your official score report to be sent to us directly from College Board.
