Freshman Admission Requirements
Steps 2–4: Complete the Application
download a paper application
Indicate your first- and second-choice majors. If you’re not admissible to your first, you’ll be considered for your second.
If you submit improved transcripts and/or SAT scores with a request to be reconsidered for your first choice, we’ll re-review your application, provided that space is available. No worries, no need to reapply!
If you're unsure: Choose the majors you feel most interested in now, or consider applying for the University College. You’ll be given opportunities and advising as you explore majors to find the best fit for you.
Students interested in secondary education: Look for your major according to the subject you want to teach. For example, if you want to teach high school English, look for “English Education” under the English Department.
If you’re interested in a major not on the list, contact the Admissions Office at
Provide any additional information that may be required for your major by the academic department. See
Special Requirements for Freshmen in Specific Majors
