At Blackburn College, we take the application process seriously for students as they embark on the next step in their educational journey. When we review your application, we understand that future students are more than just numbers on a piece of paper.

The admissions process consists of a holistic review of every student’s application. Many factors are considered in the selection of an applicant, including a properly completed application, and official academic records. Blackburn is test-optional. In addition to these components, we value extracurricular and co-curricular activities (e.g. music ensembles, athletics, theatre), community service, character and personal qualities. Academic preparation as demonstrated through yearly improvement through your high school or college career will also be considered when evaluating an applicant’s file. All factors weigh in with regard to admissions decisions in order for us to evaluate the complete student.

Interested students are strongly encouraged to apply early as we are on rolling admissions. Upon a completed file, students will be notified by an Admissions Counselor of the decision rendered. The College maintains an admissions policy for all applicants and considers students regardless of race, color, religion, age, gender, disability, or sexual orientation.
