    The Santa Clara University community is united in our thoughts and prayers for those families whose homes, lives, and communities have been affected by the wildfires in Southern California.

    Our Enrollment Management staff is particularly aware that students intending to apply Early Action to Santa Clara University might be experiencing additional anxiety about meeting the upcoming Nov. 1 deadline. Students whose families or schools are in areas directly affected by the fires should submit their admission and financial aid application materials as soon as they are able. The admission and financial aid staff will be as flexible as possible in allowing deadline extensions for these Early Action applicants. If you need additional assistance, please contact The Office of Undergraduate Admission at 408-554-4700.
