Undergraduate Admissions Guidelines
College of St. Joseph has a rolling admission policy. Although there is no application deadline, students are encouraged to apply as early as possible. Applicants are considered for both the fall and spring semesters.
To complete your application
Applicants should submit the following to our Admissions Office:
- A completed application or the Common Application.
- A brief essay so we can learn more about your background (200-400 words).
- All official high school and/or college transcripts.*
- Your ACT/SAT scores.
If you feel your ACT or SAT scores do not represent your abilities, then please do one of the following:
- Schedule an on campus interview with an admissions counselor
- Submit a graded essay with notes
- Provide an academic letter of recommendation.
* An official transcript is one that is sent directly to the college from another institution and bears the official seal of the school and/or the signature of an official.
Applying for financial aid
Students who wish to apply for financial aid are reminded that the deadline in many states for filing a needs analysis document, the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), is March 1. More information on this process is available from our Financial Aid Office.
