SAT I or ACT scores can be substituted for any of these scores as well.

Applications are normally reviewed and decisions sent to students within two or three weeks of the application becoming complete. We begin reviewing applications for the fall semester in November. Due to the volume of applications received during the November to mid-January period, responses to applications submitted before the end of January often take longer. So don’t wait—apply today.
