Applications now open for 2020 high school graduates

Apply to Transylvania University

High school seniors can now apply to be part of Transylvania University’s Class of 2024.

Admission isn’t all about test scores. Transy believes that there is more to a person than how well they perform on standardized tests. It’s why Transy became the first test-optional school in Kentucky, meaning that applicants are not required to submit their SAT or ACT test scores if they don’t feel they accurately represent their abilities. Application reviewers will consider entire high school careers when admitting students.

Applying to Transy automatically makes a student eligible for scholarship consideration. Premier Scholarships range from $18,000 all the way up to full tuition and fees. Students are encouraged to fill out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid as early as Oct. 1 to be eligible to receive as much financial aid as possible.

It’s an exciting time to join the Pioneer family. With new campus building projects and dining services, as well as all the benefits of being in downtown Lexington, students are gaining incredible opportunities to develop their whole selves in and out of the classroom.
