Incoming Students

Understanding Admission

We will inform you by letter and/or email what transcripts are needed and by when. Contact Admissions if you have any questions about your transcripts.

Accepting Your Offer

To accept your offer of admission and commit to attending Evergreen, submit the $250 tuition deposit no later than the date printed on your admit letter. Pay your deposit online through your My Evergreen account, by mail or in person.

Moving Application to Another Quarter

If your circumstances have changed and you would like to enroll at Evergreen for a future quarter, call or email Admissions for instructions. You can only move your application once and it has to happen before the 10th day of the quarter you were originally admitted to start in.

Canceling or Withdrawing Your Application

We want you here! But if your plans have changed and they do not include Evergreen, inform us of your decision so that we can free up space for someone else. Once we cancel or withdraw your application, we retain the records for three years, so we’ll happily welcome you back when the time is right. Contact Admissions for instructions on reapplying to Evergreen.
