Early Admission

The college permits the admission of students who have completed their junior year of high school and have the written approval of the high school principal. Students must demonstrate outstanding academic potential and sufficient emotional maturity to adjust to the academic and social pressures of college life. Application procedures are the same as for regular first-year student applicants.
