Program Admission

Applications to the S3 program are accepted throughout the year, with the annual deadline the first Friday in March. Preference is given to those applying in the sophomore year prior to spring registration, but applications are considered until the accepted classes are full. Please refer to the side bar on the right hand side of this page and click the S3 Application link.

Apply Early: If you expect to be admitted into the Hankamer School of Business at anytime during the next year, apply during the preceding fall or spring prior to the deadline (first Friday in March) to reserve your place in S3. The earlier the application, the better.
