Applying to Sewanee is about as straightforward as it can be. We have no application fee, we've been test-optional for the past 10 years, and we meet the full demonstrated need of all admitted first-year students who qualify for financial aid.

Uncommon Air

Enter through our gates on the Cumberland plateau and take a deep breath. Something about the air is different here.

Application Process

We only make one decision when it comes to admission. We admit students who belong at Sewanee. That's why one of our first steps in the admission process is for us to determine fit.

Visit Campus

Due to uncertainty regarding the growing intensity and duration of the pandemic, we have made the difficult decision to postpone all in-person campus visits and events until December 2020.  We encourage prospective students and their families to take advantage of our virtual visits.

Connect

At Sewanee, we provide individual attention to each student during the admission process. Your admission counselor is available to you every step of the way.

Diversity in Admission

We believe in the power of diversity to enhance our academic and residential life and to enrich our understanding of the world. We engage our most rigorous thinking when we interact with people whose perspectives differ from our own. 

Cost & Financial Aid

Starting with first-time first-year students, arriving fall 2020, we've expanded our institutional aid program to meet the full need of admitted students who qualify for financial aid. Find out the baseline tuition, room, board and fee specifics, then estimate your adjusted net price.
