Undergraduate Admissions Office
Edinboro University follows a rolling admissions policy, meaning decisions are reached on completed applications soon after all necessary materials are received by the University. Students will usually be informed of the admissions decision approximately two to three weeks after the Admissions Office receives the completed application and accompanying materials. High school students may apply any time after July 1st, following their junior year. Non-traditional, adult students are asked to submit a resume of employment history and activities since high school graduation, or last attendance at another college, university, trade school, etc.

Transfer students must meet the regular admissions requirements, including submitting satisfactory scores from the SAT or the ACT taken while still in high school, unless waived by the Admissions Office. Students who have completed one full semester at another college, prior to Edinboro, do not need to take the test.
You must request an official high school transcript from your guidance counselor and have it forwarded directly from the high school to the Edinboro University Admissions Office.
