High school seniors can apply for admission as first-year students for the fall and spring semesters. The Admission Committee, composed of admission staff, reviews each application and is responsible for all decisions.
The Admission Committee considers many factors when reviewing freshman applications. First, academic preparation is emphasized and should include coursework in English, history, social science, foreign languages, math, and science. Second, the individuality, creativity, and intellectual promise of each freshman applicant is recognized and evaluated. Find information on completing a freshman application below, whether you're curious about AP credits, are going from homeschool to college, or are submitting an Early Action application.
Eugene Lang College awards four college credits for any single AP examination in a liberal arts subject for which freshman applicants received a score of 4 or 5. The college awards eight credits for each higher-level IB subject examination in which a minimum score of 5 was earned. The maximum number of credits that can be awarded on the basis of AP and/or IB examinations is 30. Credits earned by examination count toward general credit requirements only and cannot be used to meet area-of-study requirements.
Early Action applications must be submitted by November 1. A decision letter will be mailed at the end of December. Incomplete applications will be rolled forward to the regular admission pool. In some cases, the Admission Committee may need to postpone a decision in order
to review additional information. If the committee decides to postpone its decision on an application, that application will be reviewed again during the regular decision period. Applicants to a BA/BFA pathway are not eligible for Early Action.
Eugene Lang College welcomes applications from homeschooled students. Applicants going from homeschool to college must meet the following criteria to be considered for admission to Lang:
