Rowan Revises Admissions Policy

Rowan University, which like most institutions moved to an online format for the duration of the Spring 2020 semester, has announced changes to its admissions policy that will affect every new student this fall, For Fall 2020, changes to Rowan’s admissions policies are as follows:

• Students transferring to Rowan from a community college or four-year institution will receive an admissions decision upon Rowan’s receipt of the student’s unofficial transcript, which may be uploaded directly through Rowan’s application portal.

• Because many SAT/ACT test dates have been cancelled, high school students applying for admission to Rowan may do so without submission of SAT/ACT test scores; an admission decision will be based on high school transcript and their Common Application. Those students admitted on a test-optional basis will still be considered for merit scholarships.

• Rowan will waive the admissions fee for any student facing financial challenges due to the COVID-19 crisis.

• Finally, while May 1 is known as National Decision Day, Rowan welcomes students to commit or confirm enrollment when they can.
