Prospective Students

Overview

The University of Rochester recognizes the significant impacts COVID-19 has had on the Spring 2020 term. Our admissions committees are aware of the variety of grading policies implemented, and the impacts these policies have on a student’s GPA, as they review applications. We continue to evaluate applicants holistically recognizing the context of each individual's application. As always, candidates may use their personal statements or recommendation letters to highlight special circumstances or achievements that may not be apparent due to alterations in grading policies at your own school.
