Applying early will not only allow us to review your application for an admissions decision before the new year, but it will also allow us to notify you of scholarships and aid you may qualify for. In addition, we offer the below add-on one-time scholarships if you apply by the required date for the Fall 2021 semester as a first-time in college freshman.
Submit your Admissions Application using one of the following methods:
The Gannon Net Price Calculator can be submitted to
receive an estimate of financial aid. Gannon
University's Net Price Calculator was
developed to help families plan for educational costs. In
addition to merit scholarships and grants, the calculator will
utilize Federal Methodology to estimate an expected family
contribution (EFC). The EFC will be used to determine eligibility
for federal, state and institutional need-based financial aid. The
results of this process will provide you with a comprehensive
package of merit, need and self-help resources to use as a
financial planning tool.
Print a hard copy of the Student Transcript Request. Use this form to request your high school transcripts.
If these scores already appear on your high school transcript, then you do not need to request for them to be sent to Gannon separately. If you requested to have your scores sent to Gannon at the time that you sat for the SAT/ACT exam, then those scores were sent to Gannon electronically. If you need to make a request to have your official scores sent to Gannon, those scores will also be sent to Gannon electronically by the College Board and ACT.
For students applying for admission to Gannon for the Fall 2021 semester as a freshman, the SAT/ACT requirement has been waived for a vast majority of our academic programs. The only academic programs that will still require the submission of SAT/ACT scores are those that have an affiliation with a college, university or professional school (i.e. LECOM Medical/Pharmacy/Dental, Case Western Dental, Duquesne School of Law, etc.).
While test scores will not be used to determine admission, students who do have SAT/ACT scores are encouraged to submit them to potentially be considered for additional scholarship dollars. Gannon's scholarship model allows for merit awards to be offered without test scores, but in some cases, test scores may increase the value of the merit award.
A Personal Statement assists the Admissions Committee in evaluating your eligibility for Admission beyond test scores and high school record. Submitting a statement is optional, yet recommended; and is required for LECOM 4+4 Medical Program applicants. Applicants applying online should submit their statement via
email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Personal Statements should be a typed, one-page response to one of the following topics: 1. How have you applied a classroom lesson to your daily life? or 2. Ask and answer one question that you wish we had asked.
If transferring, you'll need to print and submit a hard copy of the Transfer Recommendation Form form for every school you attended.
