At SPU, high school students who have completed college coursework through programs such as Running Start but have not yet graduated from high school are considered dual-enrolled. Dual-enrolled students will apply as a first-year student.
Here’s your application checklist:
- A completed SPU Application, or the Common Application if you are applying to multiple schools. (Make sure to fill out our member questions as well.)
- $50 application fee.
Essays. You’ll submit this with your application. This is where we get to meet you! Have fun and be authentic.
- Test scores: We are test optional. This means applicants for Fall 2021 can choose whether to submit ACT or SAT scores.
- Official high school transcript. Your high school counselor can upload an official transcript onto the Common Application, or they can mail an official transcript in a sealed envelope to our office. You can forward a sealed envelope to us as well, as long as you receive it from your high school.
- Official college transcripts. If transferring college credit, your final college transcripts will be needed.
Keep in mind, students enrolled in college-level courses before graduating from high school must apply as freshmen. However, college credits will transfer under the same policies as for all transfer students when you have sent us your college transcripts after admission to SPU.
On-campus housing is guaranteed for students who are 20 years or younger at the start of the academic year. More information about the housing process is available through Residence Life and Housing.
