Application information

Find out about requirements, fees, and deadlines


You should apply as a first-year student if you have not taken college courses after receiving your high school or secondary school diploma. If you've participated in post-secondary education or college courses while in high school, you still are considered a first-year student.


If you have graduated from high school (or equivalent) and enrolled in college courses, regardless of whether credit was earned, you are considered a transfer student. Our admission office may, at its discretion, consider a student who meets the criteria for a transfer applicant as a first-year applicant. Students who applied to Case Western Reserve in the previous twelve months can submit a reapplication form and do not need to submit an application or application fee.
