STAC has a rolling admissions policy, but we encourage freshman applicants to submit as early as possible during the senior year.  Our Admissions Team carefully reviews every application considering the following:

  • Official High School Transcript
  • SAT or ACT Scores (sent directly from agency. Use college code 2807 for SAT and 2897 for ACT)
    We'll accept both the new SAT and the old SAT and then compare your scores using concordance tables to determine your highest scores.
  • Essay (topics listed on the common application)
  • Letters of Recommendation
  • ​Resume of Extracurricular Activities

As soon as we've received your completed application and all of the required materials listed above, the application will be assigned to your counselor for review. We'll review you for academic and merit scholarships as well, there's no separate application needed. You will be updated throughout the process and a final decision letter will be sent about four weeks of our review of your completed application.  We are here to help you through the process and encourage you to contact us with any questions.  Need to contact your Admissions Counselor?  Visit the Meet the Team page.
