Undergraduate Admissions


In all likelihood you’ve prepared your whole life for this – the moment you begin applying to college. So we welcome and congratulate you on the hard work you’ve done thus far. Hopefully visiting this page means you’ve decided that Vanderbilt is the “right fit” for you and you’re excited to apply. We're excited to get to know you.

Whether Vanderbilt is your “number one” school or just one on a list of several selective universities, we deeply value your interest and commit to you that we as admissions counselors will offer you personalized service throughout this process. Every Vanderbilt applicant is treated with dignity and respect – and is part of our holistic review process– no matter how many applications we receive.

Two ways to apply.

You may use either the Common Application or the Universal College Application. Do not submit both. Choose one application, and submit all required materials through that method. Please note:  applicants to Blair must also complete a music resume and submit forms for two music teacher recommendations via the Blair DecisionDesk application.
