Towson University is now a member of the Common App.
A holistic review process is used to determine freshman admission. The primary factors in our evaluation are based on your high school courses, grades and supplemental materials submitted with the application. We will evaluate the academic rigor in the context of the high school environment, extracurricular involvement, college application essay, and other information provided on your application.
The Fall 2023 application is now open. You can submit an application through Common App (login required).
To be considered for merit-based scholarships, students should submit a completed application by the early action deadline.
A $45 non-refundable application fee is required when you apply. See our application fee waiver options.
On the Common Application, you will be required to list your activities and write a college essay. We encourage you to be as thorough as possible as these items are part of our holistic review process.
There is no requirement of the SAT or ACT for admissions review. If test scores are
submitted with an application, they will be considered but will not negatively impact
an application for admission.
See our Test-Optional FAQs.
Applicants who are non-U.S. citizens may be required to provide proof of English-language proficiency.
Please see additional admission requirements if you are home-schooled.
