Undergraduate Application Process

How to apply for an undergraduate program

To apply for an undergraduate program at Holy Apostles College, please download the checklist which includes all necessary steps to complete the application process.

Once all the required documents have been received from an applicant for undergraduate admission as an incoming freshman, the applicant will be invited to campus for an admissions interview and to take a reading comprehension and writing test.

The admissions interview lasts approximately half an hour. The reading comprehension and writing test is administered after the interview, so that the student will not feel compelled to answer the test questions quickly in order to get to the interview on time.

Holy Apostles has developed a reading comprehension/writing test to replace the writing portion of the SAT. It is estimated that the test will take between an hour and 90 minutes to complete, although the student can take up to two hours. The student is given three selected readings (one long, two short). After reading each selection, the student provides written answers to questions pertaining to the selection that has just been read. The results are evaluated by at least two members of the faculty and staff. The objective of this test is to determine the applicant’s ability to do college-level work.

Parents are not required to accompany their child to campus on this day, although they are welcome to do so. It is up to the admissions interviewer whether the parents, if they come to campus, can attend the interview. They are not allowed to be with the student during the reading comprehension/writing test.

A final decision on admission will be made within two weeks after the interview and test. The student will be notified by postal mail of the college’s decision. It is the applicant’s responsibility to provide the college with the correct mailing address. Unless otherwise directed, the address on the application will be the one used to mail the notification.
