All applications received after the cutoff date and time will not be included in the lottery pool but will be added to the lottery sorting in the order they were received. Application are also organized by priority levels as follows:

Student's current grades
Student's report card/transcript for the past two years
Disciplinary record (or letter from the school stating that there are no disciplinary incidents)

During the review process, University School reserves the right to screen applicants for past attendance, academic, and discipline. An interview may be scheduled as part of the review process. Notification of admission or non-admission will be made in a timely manner.
Applicants who are not admitted will have to reapply January 1 through the end of February to be considered for the next school year.
Parents/guardians of currently enrolled students will receive a re-enrollment form for their child during the 3rd quarter. This form must be completed by the last business day in February to maintain the child's place at University School.
Students who have previously withdrawn and would like to return to University School must reapply. They will be considered according to the admission policy.
