Secondary School Report/High School Transcript
We’ll review your coursework for academic rigor and your grades for success. Meredith uses an unweighted grading scale when reviewing transcripts.
Minimum completed units in grades 9-12:
Scores on the SAT or ACT. Meredith does not require subject tests.
Provide a recommendation from a school official who can attest to your academic ability during your junior or senior year. Additional academic recommendations are welcome.
A two-part writing sample is an important component of your application. Your response provides us with a deeper insight into you as a person and helps us understand the experiences that have shaped you. We also learn more about your interest in Meredith and why you believe Meredith is a good fit for your education.
Please submit your thoughtful response to the following questions (maximum combined length should be no longer than 500 words):
A. Describe the attributes of a Meredith education that make it a good fit for your future.
B. Provide a personal example which demonstrates your commitment to planning, pursuing, and reaching your goals in the face of challenge.
In addition to the requirements above, an interview with an Admissions Officer and two recommendations are required. One of the recommendations should be completed by a non-relative.
