Apply as an Undergraduate

Completing our online Undergraduate Application requires about 15-20 minutes. Once completed, it will be reviewed by our admissions staff and you will be notified of the status of your admission after all materials are submitted. You can also return to the application site and check on your application status at any time.

  • On the first page, you will be asked to create a unique user ID and password. By creating a secure user ID, you will have the opportunity to save your application at any point and return later to complete it. Or, you can complete the entire application at once. It might be a good idea to write down your user ID and password for reference later.
  • Paying your application fee ($35 for U.S. students, $40 for international students): You will have the opportunity to pay the application fee online on our secure server with a MasterCard, Visa, Discover card, or your checking or savings account (echeck). If you are not prepared to pay the fee now, you can return later that same day to log in with your user ID and password to pay the application fee.
In a continued response to our students during COVID-19, all undergraduate admission application fees have been waived for the following semesters: Spring, Summer and Fall, 2021. When you get to the fee section of the application, go ahead and submit the application. The fee will be waived in the process of submitting it.
  • After you complete your application and pay your application fee, you will receive an email confirmation that shows you have paid your application fee. Within 1-2 business days, you will receive an email with your SSO ID (username) and how to create a password to login to MyView. You will use MyView to check your application status or to see what items are outstanding.

Should you have any questions or should any situation arise that prevents you from applying or submitting the application fee, please contact our campus specialist in electronic applications for assistance please call (314) 516-5719.
