Parkside completes a comprehensive review with each application we receive. Both academic and nonacademic factors that are presented in an application are used to make an admission decision. Academic factors include academic rigor, GPA, class rank, and standardized test scores.
Nonacademic factors include, but are not limited to, leadership, community service, special talent and ability, and personal characteristics that contribute to the strengths and diversity of the university. The most competitive candidates for admission present positive factors in their application that are both academic and nonacademic. If you have been denied admission and wish to learn about the appeal process, please contact the Admissions Office.
Parkside anticipates closing admission for new freshmen and transfer students no later than August 15 for Fall semester and January 15 for Spring semester. All application materials (including the application, transcripts, fees, test scores, etc.) need to arrive to admissions before the end of business each of these days.
