We consider each application carefully, and read it within a “whole person” context. Every application is important, because every member of our community contributes to our special culture of diversity, curiosity and connectedness. While it is not required (except for the University of Pennsylvania School of Dental Medicine 3-4 BioDental Program), we highly recommend interviewing with a member of the admissions team. This is a unique opportunity for us to learn more about you while having your individual questions answered by a member of our staff. The Early Decision I deadline is November 15 and the Early Decision II and Regular Decision deadline is February 1.


We welcome transfers to Muhlenberg, and we accept transfer students in both the fall and spring. Transfer admission is granted on a space-contingent basis.
