Admissions Process

With all of the forms, personal essays, standardized tests and deadlines, the Chestnut Hill College Admissions staff understands that the entire admissions process can be a bit confusing (not to mention nerve-racking.) Which is why we’ve established a simple, step-by-step checklist for you to follow, ensuring that you know what you need to complete and by what date.
