Stonehill College uses the Common Application to collect all first-year applications.

The Common Application
The Common Application is an easy-to-use college application system. You will need to provide some basic information about yourself and your family, and some more detailed information about your education and extracurricular activities. You will also be asked to write a 500-650 word essay. Finally, as an applicant to Stonehill College, you will be required to answer specific questions from the College, such as your intended entry term, your academic area of interest, and your preferred residential status.

Additional Application Elements

Stonehill does not have a separate writing supplement, but the Stonehill member questions section of the Common Application does contain an optional essay question.

Stonehill Application Essay Question (250 word maximum)

Students have many choices in their college search and application process. Please share why you have chosen to consider Stonehill among your possible college options.

The Moreau Honors Program draws its members from applicants whose high school experiences demonstrate strong academic, extracurricular, service and leadership qualities. Students interested in being considered for the Moreau Honors Program must submit an additional essay along with their Common Application.

Honors Application Essay Question (300 words maximum)

Moreau Honors scholars demonstrate thoughtfulness, creativity, and are self-reflective and globally-minded. Please describe the ways in which these traits have manifested themselves in your academic journey. How do you anticipate integrating them into your career as a Moreau Honors scholar at Stonehill College?

Your official high school transcript will need to be submitted as part of your application. Your transcript should show your cumulative grade point average (GPA) and your class rank (if your school calculates one).

This document is typically submitted by your high school through the Common Application’s interface for school officials.

Teacher evaluations help us get to know you from a different perspective. The evaluation form will ask your teacher to provide insights into your intellectual promise, creative thought, leadership, integrity and self-confidence. Ask for evaluations from teachers who know you well, and be sure to ask far enough in advance for them to thoughtfully consider your time together. We require that you provide at least one teacher evaluation.

These documents are typically submitted by your high school through the Common Application’s interface for school officials.

We attract applicants from all over the country – and all over the world. The Common Application's Secondary School Report helps us get to know your high school a bit better. The report asks questions about the classes you’ve been given the opportunity to take, the size of your graduating class, and how your GPA has been calculated.

This document is typically submitted by your high school through the Common Application’s interface for school officials.

The midyear report should be submitted when your grade 12 midyear or first trimester grades are available. Your guidance counselor should also submit an updated official high school transcript at that time, including courses in progress. Remember: grade 12 first quarter grades are required and must be submitted as soon as they become available, prior to the midyear report and final report.

This document is typically submitted by your high school through the Common Application’s interface for school officials.

The final report should be submitted when your grade 12 final grades are available. Your guidance counselor should also submit an updated official high school transcript.

This document is typically submitted by your high school through the Common Application’s interface for school officials.

You may need or want to submit other supplemental forms along with your application. As an example, Early Decision applicants must submit the Common Application's Early Decision Agreement form.

Supplemental forms are available on the Common Application website.

In order to ensure equitable standards for admission, Stonehill will pilot a test-blind process for all undergraduate applicants this fall.

We understand that COVID-19 continues to disrupt the ability for students to both prepare and sit for the SAT and ACT. Our hope is to alleviate any anxiety students may have regarding access to testing as it relates to eligibility among a competitive application and scholarship pool.

Considering this change, students should not submit the results of their SAT or ACT exams when applying to Stonehill.

Application Fee Waivers

In order to remove any potential barrier in your consideration of Stonehill, we would like to provide you with an application fee waiver. Simply enter our founding year, 1948, in the fee waiver code section of the Stonehill College screen on the Common Application, and you will not be asked to pay an application fee.

Your Stonehill Applicant Portal

After you apply, you will receive access to your Stonehill applicant portal account, which will include a checklist and status for all required supporting documentation. The specific documentation required of you will depend on the application plan you select, but please know that no matter the application plan, supporting materials, as well as financial aid applications, may be submitted in the days following the application deadline. Please note that, per College policy, information and materials submitted to the Office of Undergraduate Admission cannot be returned to students.

If you have any questions about your Stonehill applicant portal account or supporting documentation checklist, please contact the Office of Undergraduate Admission at (508) 565-1373 or admission@stonehill.edu.
