Emmanuel College uses the
Common Application . Students must submit all application requirements by the appropriate application deadline to receive an admission decision. Admission decisions are received by mail typically four-six weeks after an application becomes complete.
Application requirements include the Common Application form, college essay, official high school transcript, official senior year grades, and two letters of recommendation. One letter must come from a school or college counselor and the other, an academic teacher of the student's choosing. We also require that you complete the Common Application Secondary School Report.
