Application Procedure

To ensure proper processing of applications for admission, all candidates should follow the procedure outlined below:

Complete the online Common Application with the Villanova Member Section by the appropriate deadline at (This includes the submission of the Common Application and Villanova essay along with the $80 application fee. Villanova participates in various fee waiver programs for eligible students.) Notify their secondary school counselor or other educational professionals to submit Secondary School Counselor section of the Common Application and official high school transcript to the Office of Undergraduate Admission. The completed admission applications must be received by Villanova no later than November 1 for Early Action, Early Decision 1, Honors Program Consideration and Health Affiliation Programs; December 1 for Presidential Scholarship (including nomination) consideration and Villanova Scholarship consideration; and January 15 for Regular Decision and Early Action 2 consideration.

Villanova offers the applicant the option to self-report your SAT and/or ACT scores in the testing section of the Common Application. Should you choose, you may also have your official score sent to Villanova, but this is not necessary for your application to be reviewed. If you are admitted and choose to enroll, we will require that the official scores be sent directly from the College Board and/or ACT. Any misrepresentation of these scores will result in the denial or recession of admission.

Submit one teacher recommendation online through the Common Application. (A paper copy will be reviewed, but may not become part of the applicant’s file.)
