Choose the method that works best for you. We have no preference. We simply want you to apply!
No matter which method you use to apply, we need the following materials. Each piece of your application can arrive separately, in any order, and in any format.
- Application for Admission
- High School Transcript
- ACT or SAT scores (optional)
Using the Gustavus online application is the easiest way to apply. When applying online, you will also want to ask your high school counselor to send us your transcript. Your counselor is welcome to submit your transcript online using your school's preferred electronic submission service (such as Naviance or Docufide) or by using our SENDedu service. Transcripts may also be emailed (email@example.com), mailed (Gustavus Admission Office / 800 W. College Ave. / St. Peter, MN 56082) or faxed (507 933 7474) to Gustavus.
We welcome recommendations from teachers and counselors. They may submit their own letters or use the Gustavus Recommendation Form. Recommendations may be emailed (firstname.lastname@example.org), mailed (Gustavus Admission Office / 800 W. College Ave. / St. Peter, MN 56082) or faxed (507 933 7474) to Gustavus.
Instead of the Gustavus application, you can apply for admission using the Common Application. For details or to begin online, go to commonapp.org.
By applying for admission, you are automatically applying for many of Gustavus's scholarships, including academic scholarships. To apply for others, you'll need to complete various scholarship applications. To read about all your scholarship opportunities and to apply online, visit our scholarships page.
