First step: Submit an admissions application
The online application alone can and should be submitted as soon as possible so that we can learn about your interests, connect you with faculty and others on campus, and begin advocating for your scholarship and admission consideration. If you’d prefer to submit a paper application, email email@example.com to request one.
Next step: Submit these requirements by your selected application deadline

Grove City College is test-optional, however, if you have taken or are scheduled to take an SAT, ACT, or CLT test, we encourage you to submit your test scores for optimal admission and scholarship consideration. We highly recommend that prospective computer science and mechanical engineering majors submit standardized test scores. We do require test scores for international students to demonstrate subject proficiency. Grove City College has always reviewed applicants holistically, considering academic abilities, extracurricular and leadership experiences, and Christian values and character.
A guided and relaxed, one-on-one conversation with an admissions counselor, this is a unique opportunity for you to share your story and your interests, as well as your chance to learn more about the College and get your questions answered. The interview experience is just the beginning of the conversation with your admissions counselor, who will become your advocate for admission and scholarship consideration. We look forward to getting to know you!
As applicable, be sure to follow additional application instructions and guidelines specific to transfer applicants, homeschool applicants, music applicants, international applicants, commuter applicants, and dual enrollment applicants.
If you are prepared to make a binding commitment to Grove City College as your first-choice school, we encourage you to apply under Early Decision. You should not apply under Early Decision unless you fully expect to accept an admission offer from Grove City College. Read more about Early Decision to determine if it’s right for you.
REGULAR DECISION II
Note: If you are still interested in applying to Grove City College after our Regular Decision II deadline (March 20), you are welcome to apply late. Keep in mind, however, that space in your desired major may be limited.
TRANSFER APPLICANTS: Rolling Admission
Students who are undecided about their major may select either "Undeclared — Liberal Arts" or "Undeclared — Sciences." While several majors have a tight, eight-semester curriculum (e.g. Nursing, Education, Mechanical Engineering), others are more flexible and may be declared during a student’s freshman year or by the end of sophomore year (by which point most of our undeclared students easily find their fit). Find out more about being an Undeclared Liberal Arts or Sciences student.
A payment of $250 is required of every applicant to officially accept admission to the College and secure a spot in the student body. This deposit is nonrefundable if the applicant later decides not to enroll at the College during the year for which he or she was accepted.
