Provisional Admission

Sometimes a transcript or test score doesn’t tell everything about a student’s academic potential for success. In order for the Admission Committee to better evaluate your chances of success at the University of St. Francis, we would like to know more about you. To supplement your transcripts, test scores and overall academic performance, we ask that you submit an essay to our Admission Committee.

The purpose of this essay is to give you an opportunity to share additional information about yourself, your academic experiences and any other specific information that you feel might give insights into your academic performance. It also allows you to share any challenges (health, family, personal) that may have hampered your performance in school. The essay will also be used to evaluate how well you convey your thoughts in written form.

Please write a 1-2 page, typed essay, incorporating at least one of the following topics:

  • Tell us about a time when you had to face and overcome a challenge?
  • If you feel your academic record, including test scores and transcripts, does not reflect your ability as a student, tell us why.
  • Most people who go to college expect to graduate and get a job. What else to you hope to gain from your college experience?
  • What abilities or talents do you believe you have that you would want the Admission Committee to know about?

To submit your work, fill out and submit the below form.
