Freshman Applicants

High school seniors may 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 in reviewing applications for freshman admission. First, academic preparation is emphasized and should include coursework in English, history, social science, foreign languages, math, and sciences. Second, the individuality, creativity, and intellectual promise of each student is recognized and evaluated.

Advanced Placement (AP) and International Baccalaureate (IB) Examinations

Eugene Lang College awards four college credits for any single AP examination in a liberal arts subject for which the student received a score of four or five. 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.
