Freshman Students

Things to Remember

 

  • Graduates from non-accredited US high schools, Home school students, and students who receive a GED are required to submit official ACT and/or SAT scores.
  • Home school transcripts are required to include: course names, grades and a graduation date if applicable.
  • Students applying to the Business Scholars Program or the Honors College will be required to submit an essay as part of the application for admission to be considered for entry into either program. The essay prompt for each program can be found in their respective sections in the application for admission.
  • Remember to answer the University of Utah specific questions in the Common Application.
  • The University of Utah does not require personal essays or letters of recommendation. These materials are optional and will be considered if submitted.
  • If an applicant responds to the following question on the Common Application with an answer of YES, the application will not be considered complete and therefore will not be reviewed for admission or merit scholarships until the official test scores have been received by our office. "Would you like your official ACT or SAT scores considered for admission to the university?"
