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. Visit our shadow visit page for details on shadow visit opportunities in fall 2021.

2. Submit school records. Student records (download the student records 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 application deadlines for 2022-23 are as follows:

Early Admission Deadline ($0 Application Fee!) — October 15, 2021
Regular Admission Deadline ($50 Application Fee) — December 1, 2021

After the application deadlines, University High School continues to review applications on a rolling basis until enrollment is full. We encourage students to submit the application for admission as soon as possible for best consideration.

4. Check the mail. Admission decisions are 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. The deadline to apply for financial aid in the 2022-23 school year is December 1, 2021.
