Your Rose-Hulman career starts with an application
High school seniors should complete an admissions application in the fall. Prospective freshmen can choose to apply either Early Action (EA) or Regular Decision (RD). Early Action is non-binding, meaning you do not have to make your deposit until May 1, but it does allow you to know your application decision earlier. The EA deadline to complete the application is November 1, with decisions mailed on or before December 15. If you apply Early Action and you do not have all application materials in by the deadline, we will automatically roll you to Regular Decision.
Students applying Regular Decision have a deadline of February 1, with notification mailed on or before March 15. In order to meet the deadline the application must be complete. (What is a completed application? Your transcript, senior schedule, recommendation letter, test scores and of course, the application itself.) Want to know what we are looking for in an application? Check out our admissions criteria.
If you have been accepted, you'll be asked to send a nonrefundable $400 enrollment deposit. Your deposit reserves your spot in the class and is credited toward your tuition and fees. The deposit must be postmarked no later than May 1st of your senior year. Housing contracts will be sent to you after May 1st.
New freshmen are admitted only for the fall term.
