We’re looking for smart, ambitious, creative people who want to be challenged. In a campus community of 3,000 students, with the range of academic and extracurricular programs we offer, we want multifaceted people who will contribute as much to the community as they draw from it.
We try to balance all kinds of talents and interests, from arts and athletics to languages and learning styles, from deep academic focus to broad interdisciplinary passions. The students who thrive at St. Olaf have a strong sense of themselves, whether or not they arrive here with a clear idea of what they will study.
- Provide some important information about yourself so we begin to build your relationship with St. Olaf.
- Your officer will contact you to introduce themselves, provide important information, and help you stay on top of deadlines. Complete your Part One today to get started.
- There are two options for continuing your application through the Common Application or the Coalition Application. St. Olaf does not charge an application fee!
