Undergraduate Admission Requirements

Applicants for admission to Bucknell University are expected to be graduates of approved four-year secondary schools or provide evidence of equivalent preparation. In addition to strong academic preparation in high school, candidates must meet additional requirements for certain degree programs.


You must apply to one of our three colleges: The College of Arts & Sciences, the College of Engineering or the Freeman College of Management. All three colleges use the same application.
