In addition to a completed application, the following is required:

Other Academic Work: Official transcripts of other coursework or academic certificates from all other institutions attended must be submitted.
Standardized Examination Scores: Official scores must be sent to the University by the testing agency. Though not required, exceptional scores on the SAT or comparable examinations will enhance an application. (University SAT code: 2864)

Admission Deadlines & Process
In the School of Arts and Sciences, classes begin in mid-August and mid-January. The Committee on Admission utilizes a rolling admission policy; therefore, applications are accepted and reviewed on an ongoing basis. The final deadline for receipt of applications and all supporting documentation for applicants not residing in Grenada is June 15 of the current year for the August class and November 15 of the preceding year for the January class. The deadline for applicants residing in Grenada is July 15 and December 15 for the August and January terms respectively.
The time necessary to secure official transcripts, standardized test scores, and letters of recommendation should be taken into consideration. The Committee reserves the right to defer an application to the following semester if there are no seats available.
The Office of Admission will acknowledge receipt of candidates’ applications within two weeks of its arrival.
Candidates are informed of any additional required supporting documents missing at that time. Candidates will receive notice when the application file is complete. Within a month after receipt of the complete application and supporting documentation, the application will be reviewed.
Students’ acceptance is granted upon the presumption by the Committee on Admission that:
All courses currently being taken by applicants will be completed prior to registration; and
All statements made by applicants during the admission process, whether oral, written, or in submission of academic documentation, are true and correct.
If it is subsequently discovered that false or inaccurate information was submitted, the University may nullify candidates’ acceptance or, if students are registered, they are subject to dismissal.
Within three weeks of notification of acceptance, students must submit a signed Acknowledgement of Admission along with a nonrefundable tuition deposit in order to reserve a seat in the class. The Health History forms must be completed prior to registration.
Keep track of important admissions and financial aid deadlines.
