Take the ACT or SAT more than once!

We take your best composite test scores into account (through March 1 of your enrolling year) when making an admission decision and awarding scholarships. Many students increase their scores when taking the ACT or SAT multiple times. List our school codes on your test registrations to have your scores sent directly to us: ACT #3362, SAT #1909.

Financial Aid and Scholarships

We recommend you meet with us early on in the admission process to discuss financial aid and scholarships. Once you have been admitted to the College and have received your financial aid award notice, you are invited to meet with us again to go over the details of your award.
