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. We strongly encourage students interested in Nursing to apply no later than our Early Action Two deadline on December 15.

The requirements for domestic first-year applicants include:

Application Form

You may submit the Common Application online or by mail. If you would like an application mailed to you, please contact the Office of Admissions. There is a $60 application fee to submit a paper application; the fee is waived if you apply online. Please note: If you are a home-schooled student, use the code 970000 for the secondary school block on the Common Application.


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 be 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

Fall 2022 applicants applying for Nursing will be required to send SAT/ACT scores. Test scores must be sent directly from the testing agency or be indicated on your official high school transcript. The Emmanuel College CEEB code is 3368

While not required, an interview with an admissions counselor is recommended to help the Admissions Committee learn more about your background and interest in attending Emmanuel.
