How do I apply for scholarships?

Castleton Admissions reviews each applicant holistically; all application materials submitted are taken into consideration for initial acceptance. New Student Scholarships further recognize students’ commitment to and success in academic and extra-curricular involvement.

Applying

After I apply, how long will it be before I hear a decision?

Our application review begins in September for spring and late November for fall. All decisions are mailed on a rolling basis. When your application and all required materials are submitted, we intend to send you notification of our decision in 7-10 business days. Learn more about the application process.

Can I ask a current Castleton student a question?

Yes! Our student ambassadors would love to answer any questions that you have about Castleton. Contact them by emailing WeAreSpartans@castleton.edu.

Applying

Do I have to know my major to apply?

Not at all! Many students apply undecided. A liberal arts education allows you to explore many areas so that you find the right path for you.
