Frequently Asked Questions

Here are answers to some of the most frequently asked questions about the admission process at University High School.

When will I receive a decision about admission?
Applicants will receive notification of an admission decision approximately two weeks after each admission deadline.

After the December 15 deadline, we will continue to accept applications on a rolling basis, so long as there is still space available. Notification of those admission decisions will typically come two weeks after the completed application is received.

What is required for admission to University High School?

There are four parts of the admission process at University High School:

  • Applicants must attend an admission event and/or communicate with a director of admission.
  • Applicants must spend a day on campus as a shadow guest. We are able to welcome students for an in-person or virtual shadow visit in 2020-21. 
  • Finally, applicants must submit an application with the $50 application fee, provide a letter of recommendation from a current teacher, and supply school records to complete the admission process.
How does University select the students it admits?
University High School evaluates applicants based on their academic abilities and their character. We consider student maturity, attitude toward learning, and behavior. We also seek evidence of independence, involvement, and concern for others.
