    Socioeconomic Diversity Admissions Preference

    Beginning in the 2017-2018 application period, we will give priority admissions to students who live in economically disadvantaged households. Students may qualify for this preference if someone in their household participates in a federal assistance program OR if the total annual household income meets the Income Eligibility Guidelines established by the National School Lunch Program. Families interested in receiving this preference should indicate their desire on the general application.

    More Questions? See our current Enrollment and Admissions Policy.
