TO BEGIN THE PROCESS
Parents of school-age applicants must sign the Transcript Release and present it to the guidance counselor or registrar at the applicant’s current school in order to authorize the release of a copy of the applicant’s recent academic records.
All prospective students spend time with classmates. Upper School applicants visit from 8:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Upper School applicants are paired with a current student host and will spend the majority of the day participating in a normal school day with their host. They will also participate in an interview with the Admissions Office. Lunch is provided for the visiting student. An application and Parent and Student Questionnaires must be submitted prior to the shadow day.
Every Upper School applicant must register for one of two Upper School Entrance Exam dates. The entrance exam consists of a math assessment, a group reading assessment, and a group problem-solving activity.

An informal parent meeting is required for all students applying to University Liggett School. These meetings may take place at any point during the admissions process. Most parents choose to meet on student visit days, but they can be scheduled by appointment.
The financial aid committee determines financial aid awards for admitted students based on a family’s demonstrated financial need for grades K – 12. Financial aid is not available for Prekindergarten programs. Liggett Merit Scholarships are also available to qualifying candidates applying for the 9th grade only before the deadline. The 2020-21 Liggett Merit Scholarship deadline is January 17, 2020.
For families seeking financial aid, the financial aid application must be completed on the SSS by NAIS website (www.solutionsbysss.com/parents). The deadline to apply for financial aid is January 17, 2020.
Financial aid resources at University Liggett School are finite. Applying for admission and financial aid early is strongly suggested for families requiring tuition assistance.
