It’s easier than you think.

Every step of the way, your admission counselor will help you with whatever you need –questions, forms, advice, visiting campus, connecting you with faculty, students, staff, coaches, alumni. In fact, they’ll stay with you until the day you start class, making sure you know where you’re headed.

Our rolling admission policy means there’s no deadline. And there’s no application fee.

Here’s what you do:

First-Year Students

  • Fill out the Common Application or the Cappex Application.
  • Submit your essays, test scores (SAT I or ACT), and official high school transcript or GED/HiSet scores.
  • If you’re a nursing applicant, also submit (2) letters of recommendation.
  • If you’re applying for financial aid, complete the FAFSA.

Transfer Students

  • Fill out the Elms ApplicationCommon Application, or paper application.
  • Submit official transcripts from all colleges/universities attended.
  • If applying with less than 24 college credits, your high school transcripts or GED scores are required.
  • If you’re applying for financial aid, complete the FAFSA.

Student Ambassadors

“Your admission counselor is there for the nitty gritty of the application forms, but student ambassadors know exactly what you’re going through – having recently been through it ourselves. We provide campus tours and have the answers to your questions, not only about how to maneuver college, but what it feels like.” – Gabriel Reis Levy ’18, from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, double-major in Marketing and Social Media.
