Test Optional

Daemen's "test optional" policy provides you with a choice regarding the submission of standardized test scores. Daemen College does not require applicants to submit standardized test scores (SAT, ACT) as part of the admission application for any academic major or program. Students who apply Test Optional will have their application materials and high school transcripts more heavily weighted in the admissions process.

Early Decision

Daemen offers an Early Decision admissions plan for students who are sure that they want to attend Daemen and would like to make their college choice sooner than the traditional May 1st deadline. Students who apply for Early Decision are offered a Four Year Tuition Guarantee meaning that any increase in tuition will be met with a scholarship to mitigate the increase of that cost for their four years of undergraduate study.

Early Decision Deadline: November 2nd, 2020
Early Decision Deposit Deadline: December 18th, 2020

Rolling Admissions

Daemen offers a rolling admissions policy, which means applications are accepted year round and admissions decisions are given out between 1-3 weeks depending on the volume of applications during the year. The first Rolling Admissions decisions will be released in Mid-November 2020, and students will have until May 3rd, 2021 to submit their tuition deposit.

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.
