Finding Your College Home

Students meet on the Lincoln Center campus

We know how much time you’ve spent trying to find the right college. We’re looking for applicants who can add to our community too. Each year, we have room for only 2,300 to 2,400 students in our incoming class. That can make our admission task difficult.

We know a lot of you are pretty remarkable candidates who would make a real contribution to any institution you attend. Learn more about what we're looking for and then we'll walk you through how to apply.
