How do I apply for an application fee waiver?
Fee Waivers can be obtained from your High School Guidance Office.
If you are applying online and using a fee waiver, please complete the entire application and once prompted for payment, select "paying with a fee waiver." You must now mail your fee waiver to the Admissions Office before your application can be processed.
Do you require an essay or letters of recommendation?
Recommendation letters, resumes, and personal essays are recommended, but not required. If submitted, this information will be reviewed during the admissions process and will also be taken into consideration by our Scholarship Committee. There is NO specific recommendation form to be completed, but you can e-mail or mail your recommendation letters to our Admissions Office with your other required documents.
How can I check on the status of my application?
Go to our Admissions Portal and log in using the information you should have received via e-mail after you completed your application. If all information has been received you will be notified by mail of a decision.
You willnot be able to view your application status directly after you submit your online application. It takes at least two business days for your application fee to process and your application to load into our system.
What is the earliest I can apply for admissions?
Once your entry term's application is available online, you can apply at any time. We highly recommend students taking the SAT or ACT during their junior and senior year.
How can I confirm my acceptance and pay my enrollment deposit?
If you have been accepted, you must confirm your enrollment by carefully following the steps listed on our Confirm page.
My home address has changed. What do I do?
Incoming freshman should email their change of address information to our Admissions Office at email@example.com.
Once you have started taking classes at Ship, address changes go to the Office of Registrar.
