Admissions Deadlines

Year-Round Applications for Any Upcoming Term

Under our rolling admissions plan, Saybrook accepts applications year-round for multiple upcoming terms. We accept applications for admission and federal financial aid until the start of each semester or until all available slots have been filled by qualified applicants. We recommend, however, that you send all your application materials at least four weeks prior to the start of the semester to provide sufficient time for processing. Applications for Certificate Programs and individual courses must also be received by the start of each semester.

To begin the process, complete the online application form and submit the required documents for your program. Upon receipt of a completed application, your application will be reviewed. You will be notified as soon as a decision is made.

No Waiting

We evaluate each application independently and will notify you whether you have been admitted several weeks after we have received all your application materials. We do not wait to notify all students at once.

Apply Early for the Best Chance at Scholarships

Scholarships are awarded to eligible students on a first-come, first-served basis. To ensure your best chance of being awarded a Saybrook Scholarship, we must receive your completed admissions application by the priority date identified for the semester for which you are applying.

If applying for a federal loan, US citizens and permanent residents must also submit their FAFSA. Students who complete their applications by the priority date identified for the semester for which they are applying will receive priority consideration for the highest scholarship awards (more details on Saybrook Scholarships). Therefore, it is in your best interest to complete your application and FAFSA as early as possible. If you are awarded a scholarship, you will have two weeks after receiving notification of the award to confirm your intention to enroll and accept your scholarship.
