The Hofstra Student Profile
Admission to Hofstra is selective. From a large and talented applicant pool, we have enough space in our first-year class to offer admission to only 59 percent of those who apply. Most students offered admission to Hofstra have completed a rigorous college preparatory curriculum in high school with a solid average. Standardized tests are also part of our review.The Admissions Committee carefully reviews students' letters of recommendation, extracurricular activities and essay, as well.
It is the goal of Hofstra University - a selective, midsize, private, coed institution - to enroll a first-year and transfer class of students from diverse backgrounds and locations, with varied interests and talents. Applications are accepted for fall and spring admission. Applicants must submit the application, a $70 application fee, high school transcript, SAT or ACT scores, the essay and a guidance counselor's recommendation. Hofstra accepts applications via mail or online, and also accepts the Common Application.
The Admission Committee reviews each application individually to assess academic achievement, curricular rigor, leadership potential, depth of extracurricular activities, standardized test scores and overall interest in attending Hofstra University. The application process provides an opportunity to share information that may not be apparent on a transcript or through test scores. Questions about the application process should be directed to the Undergraduate Admission Office in Bernon Hall.
