We're seeking students with passion and purpose. 

We hope you are already familiar with our academic programs and wide range of campus life activities. If not, you should really start there.

Once you become serious about applying, you'll find answers to standard questions about average GPA, SAT, etc. on our Class Profile page. We list out specific application requirements for first-year, transfer, and international applicants in each section. We know costs and financial aid are often of concern now too. We encourage you to check out the achievements of our alumni to better understand the value of a Santa Clara education to your future. 


Prospective students may apply for admission using the Common App.
