Finding the Right Fit

Finding the right mix of students for admission to St. Edward's involves a careful process of evaluation. We seek students from all over the world who want to learn about new cultures and exchange ideas in a diverse and challenging academic environment. If you are not a U.S. citizen or permanent resident, we invite you to learn about international admission.

U.S. News & World Report, in its annual Best Colleges survey, confirms St. Edward's as "selective." Still, grades and test scores alone do not ensure a good fit. From that starting point, our Admission team begins to learn about you.

Some key questions we ask:

  • Do you seek a challenging academic environment that emphasizes engaged learning, collaboration and an international point of view?
  • Does diversity — of every kind — bring out the best in you?
  • How eager are you to discover new worlds, do your part to make a difference and be changed in the process?
  • Are you willing to share your international experiences with a globally engaged student population?
