There are no specific courses required for admission. However, the recommended course of study is five academic subjects in each year of high school, including:
Early Decision is an excellent option for students who know that Scripps is their top-choice college. Early Decision is a binding process that provides an early application review and notification of admission decision. Regular Decision is our traditional application.
An optional part of the admission process, an interview can give you the opportunity to discuss your interests and goals and to learn more about Scripps. On-campus interviews can be scheduled as part of your visit to Scripps; alternatively, off-campus interviews may be available in your local area.
All first-year applicants are considered for merit-based scholarships ranging from $10,000 to $22,000 annually, and the highest award is the James E. Scripps Scholarship. All merit-based scholarships are renewable for four years and applicants are notified whether they have been awarded a merit-based scholarship at the time of admission. No additional forms or early application is required. Please contact the Admission Office for questions about merit-based scholarships.
