In addition to your grades and courses taken, we carefully consider what we learn about you from your recommendation letters, essay, activities, standardized test scores and other information presented about your background.

Our process is thorough and individualized. If you are applying as a transfer student or international student, please make note of special requirements.

The requirements for domestic first-year applicants include:


Official High School Transcript

Your school counselor may submit your current high school transcript by mail or through the Common Application website. When your first marking period grades become available, please make sure the grades are submitted to our office. Click here to see the coursework we review as part of your high school transcript. 



Two Letters of Recommendation

Your recommendations should come from your school counselor and an academic teacher of your choosing.


Standardized Test Scores (Optional)

Applicants for admission are not required to submit standardized test scores (SAT I, SAT II and ACT). If you choose to submit your test results, please have them sent directly from the testing agency or indicated on your official high school transcript. The Emmanuel College CEEB code is 3368.

Students applying to Emmanuel's direct-entry Bachelor of Nursing program for Fall 2022 can apply test-optional
