First-Year Students

Admission to the Kent Campus is selective. We take a holistic approach to the application review process and consider a variety of factors in the admission decision. The Admissions Office carefully reviews each applicant based on multiple factors including cumulative grade point average (GPA), strength of high school preparatory curriculum, grade trends and special talents.

We’re looking for students who are committed to succeed, inspired to lead and are ready to make an impact on the world!
