Admission Overview

March 1, 2016  |  Admissions  |  No Comments

Hood College admits students on a rolling basis, beginning on October 1st of each year. Students will be notified of their acceptance status and any merit scholarship offer they might qualify for within three weeks of submitting a complete application.

Students may apply either through the Common Application or Hood’s own Blazer Application - whichever is easier for them! There is no fee for either application.

A complete application includes:

  • Application and essay (prompts are given on the application)
  • Two letters of recommendation (at least one from a teacher and one from a guidance counselor)
  • An official transcript (sent directly from your high school)

As of Fall 2015, Hood College is completely test optional, meaning that we do not require students to submit SAT or ACT scores for admission. Read More
