If you were asked to submit your Spring grades and are wondering what that means for your application, you have come to the right place!

First things first, why do we request spring grades? There are a number of reasons we want to see your spring grades:

  • You have an important course in-progress during your spring term
  • We want to continue seeing your grade trends
  • It is your first year at another institution

In general, this request means that we want to see your academics before making a final admission decision. However, this does not mean that you chances of admission are higher or that you are guaranteed admission.

Next Steps: Once your institution has posted final spring grades, you will want to send an official copy of your transcript to us (either electronically or by mail) or upload an unofficial copy on your student portal

If your school does not post spring grades until later in the summer, that is ok! Make sure to submit your grades as soon as they are posted.

Once we receive your spring grades, we will evaluate your application and you can expect an admission decision in mid-July.

As always, you can reach out to us with any questions at
