Application information

Find out about requirements, fees, and deadlines

First-year

You should apply as a first-year student if you have not taken college courses after receiving your high school or secondary school diploma. If you've participated in post-secondary education or college courses while in high school, you still are considered a first-year student.

Transfer

If you have graduated from high school (or equivalent) and enrolled in college courses, regardless of whether credit was earned, you are considered a transfer student. Our admission office may, at its discretion, consider a student who meets the criteria for a transfer applicant as a first-year applicant. Students who applied to Case Western Reserve in the previous twelve months can submit a reapplication form and do not need to submit an application or application fee.

Additional Information

A Case Western Reserve University education is an investment in you—and your future. We provide a variety of merit scholarships and need-based aid. We meet 100% of demonstrated need for all admitted students. You can be considered for need-based financial aid awards, including a combination of grants, loans and work-study. More than 80 percent of our students receive some financial assistance. As a first-year student, you’ll automatically be evaluated for several scholarships. Plus, there are more for which you can be considered. Last year alone, we awarded $110 million in institutional aid to our students.
