Eligibility & Requirements

Most applicants are unmarried and between the ages of 16 and 24 on the date of admission. Home-schooled students and students from other colleges are also welcome to apply.

Regardless of AP scores or previous college coursework all students enter Webb as freshmen. Selection is made without regard to race, religion, gender or geographic origin.

The required standardized tests (no older than two years old at time of application) are the SAT’s, SAT II’s or ACT.

Students applying to Webb from other colleges may have the SAT II’s waived in lieu of college courses in calculus and either physics or chemistry with no less than a 3.2 or B+ final average. This is reviewed on a case by case basis and students should consult the Office of Admissions regarding this waiver.

Full List of Requirements.

Early Decision

We consider candidates who make Webb Institute their first choice under an early decision plan. Applicants wishing to be considered under this plan must have taken all required College Board tests by the end of October of their senior year in high school and must have an excellent academic record.

October 15: Applications due.

All required application forms, including a transcript indicating rank in class, must be on file by October 15 of their senior year. If accepted for early consideration, the applicant will visit the campus for the final interview before the end of November.

All early decision candidates will be notified by December 10 whether they have been accepted. Accepted candidates will be expected to withdraw all applications to other colleges and to provide a non-refundable deposit to secure their position in the incoming class.

Any applicant not accepted under the early decision plan will be considered, without bias, for admission during the regular process beginning in March, unless a final rejection is received in December.

In addition to these requirements specific to Early Decision candidates, the same forms necessary for Regular Decision candidates must also be submitted by Early Decision candidates.

Our College Board SAT code is 2970. Our ACT code is 2987

Regular Decision

  • Before December 20: Visit campus and meet with an Admissions officer. Visits are not required in the preliminary stage of application, but are highly recommended.
  • By February 1 of Senior Year: Take the College Board Exams
    • Scholastic Aptitude Test (both verbal and mathematical sections)
    • SAT II Physics or Chemistry
    • SAT II Mathematics, Level I or II
  • February 15: Applications due. It is recommended that students begin the application at the start of their senior year to help the Admissions Office track your progress and contact you if necessary.

In most cases, there are four available SAT test dates between the start of the last year of high school and our application deadline of February 15th. They are early October, early November, early December, and late January. It is recommended to take the required tests in November and December and leave the January date as a backup in case prior testing cannot be completed or scores obtained do not fall into the desired range for candidates.

Please contact our Admission’s Office or your high school guidance counselor for additional information about these exams.

Candidates will be contacted in late February and early March about the status of their application.  Interviews take place on a rolling schedule throughout March and April and are by invitation only.
