Admission Process

You are 3 steps away from joining something bigger than yourself!

Step #1 Submit

Submit the Online Application

All applicants are required to create an account in our application portal. You can then complete the application at your own pace by filling out the required fields, requesting references, and uploading relevant documents. Relevant documents include unofficial test scores, unofficial transcripts, a profile picture, and one essay. While we can evaluate your application based on unofficial scores and transcripts, we will be official scores and transcripts in order to enroll. Apply now!

Step #2 Request

Request Supporting Materials

We invite applicants to self-report scores and can make admissions decisions based on self-reported scores. Any discrepancies between self-reported scores and official scores may result in disqualification.

After submitting your online application, your dashboard will display a checklist of supporting materials we still need. The dashboard will update in real time as we receive these materials.

Supporting materials may include (but are not limited to):

  • Official scores from a recent standardized test (SAT, ACT, or CLT)
  • Official high school and/or college transcripts
  • Official proof of English proficiency (international applicants)

Most official documentation can be requested through your online application portal. Any documentation not requested through your portal must be sent to

Step #3 Schedule

Schedule an Interview

Each student who submits an application is asked to complete a pre-acceptance interview that can take place either in-person or virtually.

Once you have submitted your application, you will receive a link to schedule your interview. Interviews are typically 30-50 minutes long and will be conducted by a person of the same gender.

After your interview is complete and we have received all necessary documentation, your application will be reviewed.

What is Sattler looking for in an applicant?

Sattler College enrolls first-time applicants who present clear and compelling evidence of having completed an academically rigorous program of education at the secondary level, and transfer students with comparable secondary education who have demonstrated, through enrollment in an accredited college or university, that they are capable of succeeding as students in an academically rigorous college.  All students enrolled in Sattler College are also required to demonstrate their strong commitment to the fundamental values of Sattler as a Christian college.

What is the student's relationship to the founding precepts?

Once enrolled, students are asked to sign a Student Agreement where they commit to “read, understand, and respect Sattler College’s founding precepts.” (See 2022-23 Student Handbook, p. 3)

Do you accept homeschooled students?

Yes! In fact, 50% of our current students come from homeschool backgrounds. Take a look at our Homeschooler’s Guide to College for more information on how to prepare for college.

Can I use a family member as a reference?

We do not allow family members to serve as references for applicants. The only exception is for homeschooled students who may use a parent as an academic reference, provided the parent served as their primary educator.

Do I have to take a standardized test?

Yes. We accept scores from any ACT, SAT, or CLT taken within the last 5 years. We also practice super-scoring (combining your highest scores from each exam to give you the best possible final composite score).

Do you accept international students?
Do I need a high school diploma to apply?

All applicants must have either a high school diploma or GED.

Can I visit Sattler?

Yes. We would love to host you for a visit. For more information check out our Visit page.

How do in-state and out-of-state tuition costs differ?

They don’t. All of our full-time students are eligible for Entrustment, which means they will not be charged tuition. See our Entrustment page for more information.
