Apply to Rhodes

Testing Information for 2020-2021 Applicants: We believe that the current circumstances will make it very difficult for rising high school seniors to include standardized testing in their college search. Rhodes will not require a standardized test score to be considered for admission. Applicants can let us know about their intention to include a test score on the Common Application. Read more about this policy at Test Optional FAQs.

Finding the Right Fit 
The college application allows you to show the Admission committee that you are excited and ready to become an essential part of the Rhodes classroom and community. We use a holistic approach to evaluate every facet of your application to get a better sense of the whole you. When examined together, your transcript, extracurricular activities, recommendations, personal statement, and demonstrated interest can paint a bigger picture of your ability to contribute to Rhodes as a classmate, roommate, teammate, and community member.
 
We recommend that applicants be active throughout their college search and personally engaged with the college. We want to get to know you and to help you get to know Rhodes! Come for a campus visit, meet your Admission counselor when they visit your school, or connect with us through an interview. 

    First-year students can choose from three application options: Early Decision I and II, Early Action, and Regular Decision.

    You are more than just a number, so we ask for more than just your GPA! Use the checklist below to make sure you haven’t missed anything important.
