Use the buttons above to learn more about your specific application requirements. Traditional freshmen, transfer students, and international students apply to Hope using the Common Application. We also offer applications for dual enroll and guest students.
Completing the Common Application
- When you go from here to work on your Common Application, you’ll have left the Hope College website. Our admissions team can answer many of the questions you might have about the application, but you may also want to make use of the Application Support Center.
- Once you’ve completed your Common Application, be sure that you’ve reviewed the requirements for Hope. Look for a green arrow signifying that all application requirements for Hope have been completed.
- Submitting the $35 application fee (fee waivers are also available) and submitting your application to Hope require two different steps on the Common Application. To submit your application fee, use the Payment tab on the left-hand side of the application screen. To submit your application, use the Signature tab on the left-hand side of the application screen.
Students who complete their application by November 1 will receive an admissions decision that is mailed the week of Thanksgiving. Applications received after November 1 will be evaluated and decisions made on a rolling basis.
