When to apply and what we need from you.
If New College is the right fit for your son or daughter, then we encourage them to apply! Because we have a limited number of spots available in the fall class, we urge students to apply early. Each year, we have to turn away a number of well-qualified applicants who apply later in the admission process, as we run out of spots to offer.
Below are the deadlines to complete the admission application file with all of the materials (including official transcripts, test scores, academic recommendation and other required papers). These are TYPICAL DATES, so be sure to check out apply for the latest deadlines.
For students applying for Fall admission:
Deadlines for Application File Completion: November 1
For students applying for Spring admission:
The application file deadline is December 1. Scholarship funding is typically not available to students who enter in spring. Please note: We reserve the right to cancel the spring class admission cycle if the College has already met its enrollment goals.
All required materials must be postmarked or transmitted on or before the deadline, and received by New College Admissions no later than 10 days after that deadline. Please plan ahead to make sure we get all of your materials on time!
February 15 is the deadline to complete the application file for our guaranteed scholarship program for first-time-in-college students.
Our application parts include: application with one essay and fee (or fee waver); official transcripts; SAT or ACT scores; academic recommendation, and application supplement. International students, and students who have attended schools in other countries, may have additional paperwork and/or testing requirements. We use the Common Application, which can be found at www.commonapp.org.
