APPLY TO SALISBURY
The Application Process
The freshman application for Spring 2014 is now closed. The Office of Admissions is accepting applications for Fall 2014.
Your application to Salisbury should include:
Official SAT/ACT Scores
All standardized test results must be officially forwarded to Salisbury University from the respective testing centers or your high school guidance office. The ETS code number for Salisbury University is 5403 and the ACT code is 1716.
If you are scheduled to take an exam in the future, please remember to include Salisbury University when asked where you want your scores reported.
Official High School Transcripts
Request your official transcripts early from your guidance office. Faxes will not be accepted.

Letters of Recommendation
Salisbury University requires one letter of recommendation, typically satisfied by the Secondary School Counselor’s Recommendation Form submitted by your school counselor. Applicants are welcome to submit additional letters of recommendation, but they are encouraged to include them in the transcript packet. Any letter of recommendation included with the transcript packet will remain with the student’s file for review. If other recommendation letters are submitted separately, the Office of Admission will match them with the student’s application to the degree possible. Because of high application volume, however, the Office of Admission is not able to verify receipt of letters of recommendation received separately. If you choose to apply using the Common Application, electronic copies of the high school transcript and letters of recommendation will also be accepted
This is your opportunity to tell us more about you, beyond what we would see on your transcript.

When to Apply
Salisbury University has four different admissions plans under which freshman applicants are considered:
is the best option if you are a high school senior and you are certain that Salisbury University is the institution you would like to attend.
In this case, students should submit their application and all required materials (including official SAT or ACT scores and an official high school transcript)
by November 15. Decisions are made by December 15 and a non-refundable
$400 deposit is required by February 15. If you are admitted to SU under this option,
you will need to withdraw all other college applications as Early Decision is a “binding” agreement. If comparing financial aid packages is an important
element of a student’s decision, SU does not encourage that student to apply through Early Decision. However, students will be reviewed for scholarship
consideration at the time of admission and will receive information on any scholarships received.
is for high school seniors who submit their application and all required materials (including official SAT or ACT scores and an official high school transcript)
by December 1. Decisions are made by January 15 and a non-refundable
$400 deposit is required by May 1. As a deposit is not required until May 1, Early Action
is considered a "non-binding" agreement.
is available for students who submit all required application materials for admission (including official SAT or ACT scores and an official
high school transcript) by a recommended deadline of January 15. Candidates are notified of the admission decision by March 15. Those who are
admitted have until May 1 to confirm their acceptance by submitting a non-refundable
$400 deposit. Applications received after the January 15th
deadline will be considered on a space-available basis. The University reserves the right to close admissions when the projected enrollment is met.
Early Admission is an admission option for academically
talented high school juniors who wish to “skip” their entire
senior year. Students who are completing their junior year of
high school may be considered for acceptance into the regular
University program provided they present evidence of outstanding
academic achievement. The requirements for admission under the
Early Admission Plan include a competitive grade point average
and competitive SAT or ACT scores with our applicant pool,
rigorous courses, a positive recommendation from the student’s
high school, and a certification of eligibility for a high
school diploma. A personal interview with the SU Office of
Admissions is required.
