How to Apply

Choosing a high school is a big decision, but we’re thrilled you’re considering University High School. Here’s how to submit your application for admission to University High School.

Note: Families interested in transferring after the start of the 9th grade year should visit our transfer student page for more information on the transfer student application process.

Application Checklist

(Steps 1-3 may be completed in any order.)

1. Schedule an in-person or virtual shadow visit. Spending a school day at University High School is the best way to see our community in action; however, we recognize that some families may not be comfortable with an in-person visit at this time. In fall 2020, prospective students may choose between an in-person shadow visit day or a virtual shadow visit day. Visit the shadow visit page for details.

2. Submit middle school records. Student records (download the student record release form) and a letter of recommendation are required. School records from the past two school years, as well as a standardized test result from the past two years, are preferred (if available).

3. Submit your application and supporting documents. Families may apply online to University High School. Our two application deadlines for the 2021-22 school year are as follows:

  • Early Admission Deadline (No Application Fee!) — Nov. 1, 2020
  • Regular Admission Deadline ($50 Application Fee) — Dec. 15, 2020

4. Check the mail. Admission decisions will be mailed approximately two weeks after each application deadline.

Note: The application for admission is independent from the application from financial aid. Families interested in receiving financial aid must submit that application separately.
