Apply to Notre Dame de Namur University

Freshman Students

NDNU is a Common App school; we are a member of a consortium of nearly 500 colleges and universities that share a commitment to evaluating applicants holistically and who share a single application. As part of the online Common Application, you will be prompted to prepare the following materials to complete your application:

  • A high school transcript (you cannot be reviewed and admitted without this)
  • A letter of recommendation from a teacher or counselor
  • Personal essay
  • SAT (we accept current or redesigned scores – essay not required) or ACT scores. For the purpose of admission, just tell us your scores on the Common Application. We’ll certify your scores later with a score report from the testing agency.
