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.
Using the Gustavus application online is the easiest way to apply. When applying online, you'll need to get an official transcript from your guidance office along with a Gustavus Recommendation Form completed by a teacher or counselor. You can open the Gustavus Recommendation Form below, print the form, give them to your guidance counselor or teacher, and ask them to mail or fax the forms to Gustavus (Gustavus Admission Office / 800 W. College Ave. / St. Peter, MN 56082; fax: 507-933-7474). They could also submit each form online using your school's preferred electronic submission service (such as Naviance or Docufide) or by using our SENDedu service.
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. 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.
