            Who is a first-year student? 

            A student who has earned a high school diploma or GED, or someone who may have earned college credits prior to graduating from high school, would qualify to apply as a first-year student.

            First-year students most commonly enroll at Edinboro University in the fall or spring semesters following their high school graduation. High school students may apply any time after July 1, following their junior year. 

            High school applicants:

            Students are able to apply for admission to the University starting July 1 following their junior year. Admission decisions at EU are reached using a combination of your official high school records, SAT/ACT test scores and choice of major. Some EU majors have contracted admissions standards requiring higher minimum GPA and/or test scores, along with a more thorough look at the applicant's high school transcript. Once your completed application has been received and reviewed, a formal letter from the Admissions Office will notify you of your status.

            Applicants who have never attended college after high school graduation:

            Non-traditional applicants should follow the same instructions for high school applicants. Those students who have graduated more than two years ago from high school are not required to submit SAT or ACT scores.

            Transfer applicants:

            If you have attended any post-secondary education after high school graduation, you will need to apply as a transfer student. Additional transcripts, outside of your high school transcripts, may be required for admission to the University.
