On-the-spot admissions decisions

Are you a high school senior? Your Go First Friday could be even more exciting!

You can receive an on-the-spot admission decision following your campus tour by submitting your application ahead of time, and then delivering your transcript and (optional) standardized test scores to an admissions representative when you check in for the event.
