Menlo College Admissions: How It Works
Menlo has a rolling admissions policy, however, priority consideration for admission is given to students who complete their applications by February 1 for the fall semester and December 1 for spring semester. We will make a decision about your admission within two weeks of receiving all your admissions materials.

Apply With the Common Application
Menlo College accepts the Common Application, a single college admission application – online or in print – that you may use to apply to any of 488 participating schools. If you are applying to multiple schools, this can greatly reduce your paperwork. For more information, visit the Common Application website.
What You Will Need to Provide
All applicants are required to submit an essay, transcripts and test scores. Freshman applicants are required to submit a recommendation from a teacher or counselor. If your first language is not English, you must submit your TOEFL score. For a detailed list of required application materials, view our Admission Requirements.
