Application Instructions

Our admissions process is not about competition.

For us, it is an extended conversation about you: our chance to get to know you better and your opportunity to have all of your questions answered. If your circumstances allow, we encourage you to visit. If you can’t visit, we are happy to meet virtually to talk about your interests, your passions, and your goals. We welcome applications from students who demonstrate strong academic abilities, creativity, a willingness to work hard and contribute to community, as well as those who exhibit determination, self-awareness and maturity.

We are fully test optional. We do not require SAT or ACT scores, nor do we charge an application fee.

We offer a need-blind admissions process and will not consider your financial situation when deciding admission.

Recommendations: Recommenders should submit letters directly to Antioch College through Common App or electronically to Students applying as first-time college students must have a school-based recommendation submitted in support of their application.

Secondary Education: Students must provide documentation of having completed secondary education prior to enrollment. Evidence may include official high school transcript, successful completion of GED, or a homeschool report.
