Applying to Rhodes

Successful Rhodes applicants will demonstrate their academic readiness and their well-rounded extracurricular lives through their application for admission.  Rhodes practices holistic admission, meaning that our evaluation reviews each student′s high school transcript, SAT or ACT scores, a written essay, extracurricular activities, and school and teacher recommendations.

Further, we recommend that applicants be personally engaged with the college by visiting with the Admission staff on campus, in their high school, or in their communities.  Students may also demonstrate interest through telephone calls and written correspondence with the Admission staff.  The better we know you and the better you know Rhodes, the better we will know if you and Rhodes are a good fit.
