Easy and Personalized Process
We want to know about you beyond your test scores and grades. The application process helps you to refine your goals and to showcase your talents and potential. You can send your application at any time and, if your file is complete with all required materials, we’ll send you a decision within two weeks of completion.
Here’s what you need:
We accept the Common Application, Universal College Application, and our Newberry College Application. You can choose the one that works best for you. All are treated equally in the admission process. Complete the online application form.
High school and/or college transcripts should be official and sent directly from your high school and any colleges you have attended.
3. SAT / ACT Scores
If you list Newberry College when you take your SAT or ACT tests, your results will be sent directly to us. You can also have your scores sent later by requesting additional reports from the testing agency.
4. Letter of Recommendation
Ask a teacher or school counselor to write in support of your application. This should be someone who can comment on your ability to do college-level work, to be a responsible student, and to interact appropriately with peers.
5. Personal Statement
Your application has suggestions for your personal statement. Select the one that has the most meaning for you and write a few paragraphs about that subject. We want to know who you are and what is important to you.
