As a high school student Benjamin Craig's motto was, "Here's my plate, load it on." He brought that mentality with him to Emmanuel, where he has always been ready to take on a new opportunity.
In our application review, Emmanuel College considers all aspects of your record and experience as part of the admissions decision.
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:
*In order for an application to be completed and reviewed for admission, all required materials must be received by the application deadline.
