How to Apply

At the University of Saint Francis, we know you’re more than a set of numbers. Our admissions process gives you the opportunity to show us your best self, in and out of the classroom. We want to know about your interests and passions, about where you see yourself in the future, and how we can help you get there. 

Applying to college doesn’t have to be stressful.  

Follow these simple steps and let Saint Francis get to know you.

  • Fill out and submit our free online application or apply through the Common Application.
  • Create a My Admissions Account if you have not already done so. If you use our online application, you will create one during the application process.
  • Send us your high school transcripts and test scores. The ACT and SAT are optional for Saint Francis applicants, but scores can be sent to Saint Francis’ school codes 1238 for ACT and 1693 for SAT. Keep in mind that some programs do request a test score for program review.
  • Transfer students should submit both college and high school transcripts unless they’ve completed more than 24 college credit hours or are applying to a program in the health sciences. More information about applying to Saint Francis as a transfer student can be found here.
  • Homeschooled students:
    • If the transcript is evaluated and verified by an independent school, the applicant will not need to submit other documentation. 
    • If the transcript is not associated with a school, the applicant must submit SAT or ACT scores to be reviewed for university admission.
  • In some cases, applicants may be asked to submit a supplemental essay that addresses past academic performance and how they plan to improve and succeed as a student at Saint Francis.
  • Some of our more selective programs require supplemental material for your application. Check to see if the program you’re applying to has additional requirements.
