 Admissions Policy

Test Optional

Daemen's "test optional" policy provides you with a choice regarding the submission of standardized test scores.  Submitting SAT or ACT scores is optional for admission.  This policy was designed for students who have demonstrated academic excellence in the classroom and who do not believe their standardized test scores accurately reflect their abilities. 

Rolling Admissions

Daemen offers a rolling admissions policy, which means applications are accepted year round. This allows students to apply early and learn if they are accepted.  Many students take advantage of our rolling admissions policy and apply early.

Home Schooling

Students who have been home schooled are requested to provide appropriate evidence of equivalency of high school education. Typically, this will be documentation in the form of possession of a General Equivalency Diploma (GED) or written attestation by the superintendent of schools in the student’s public school district of residence that the student has completed an appropriate program of home instruction. Appropriate documentation is also needed to establish eligibility for financial aid. All home-schooled students should discuss their particular situation with financial aid and admissions counselors.

If an applicant is approved admission to Daemen College and is currently a student, it will be understood that such admission has been granted on a provisional basis until all final records have been reviewed and found to be in accordance with Daemen's admission requirements.

Discrimination Policy

Admission to the College is based on academic potential without regard to sex, race, religion, national origin, sexual orientation, marital status, veteran status, or disability.  Daemen College subscribes to all state and federal regulations prohibiting discrimination on the basis of race, color, sex, religion, age, disability, national origin, sexual orientation, veteran status, or marital status.  Daemen College's nondiscrimination policy complies with all current statutes and applied to admission, employment, and access to all programs, services, and other activities offered by the College.
