-Cumulative GPA: Average GPA will range from year to year

How to Apply

The first step is to sign up for and attend a mandatory information session (offered throughout the academic year) and then meet with a Whitman Academic Advisor to discuss the requirements and submit application materials.

The Whitman School admits new students for the fall semester only.  The application deadline is the last day of classes of the spring semester.  All pre-requisites must be completed by the end of the spring semester.  Applications are reviewed by the Transfer Student Review Committee during the summer months.
