Early Decision students have first priority in housing selection and in class registration.
Deadline: November 3, 2014

• Regular Decision: Students not applying under one of our early application plans will be considered under our Regular Decision plan.

And a bonus for our blog readers…

Prowler’s Points of Perfection for your HPU Application

1. Beginning your application super early is a great start. Looking at deadlines on a calendar can be overwhelming, but taking control of the “big pile” is what will make it manageable! Devise a plan – divide your stack into “chunks” that can serve as mile markers, or set personal deadlines and goals for yourself. Remember, the early bird gets the big envelope!

2. Have someone look over your essays before you submit them. And someone else, and even a third person if you can! No matter how great of a writer you are, we ALL have typos! Other readers can also provide important feedback like how your voice comes across, the flow of your essay, the clarity of your topic, etc.

3. Be yourself! College is about finding the right fit for YOU. Presenting yourself as someone you aren’t will not be advantageous to you in deciding where to spend your next four years. If you haven’t already, we strongly encourage you to visit our campus and make sure you can see yourself learning, living and growing here. Be sure to let the best parts of you shine on your application!

4. And most importantly, don’t let the application process define you as a person. You are not just your SAT score – you are full of potential! Like our President Dr. Nido Qubein says, nothing else works unless you do!

We  look forward to receiving your application soon!

Good luck & Happy College Application Season!
