Application deadline for Prologue I: Wednesday, September 3, 2014
Application deadline for Prologue II: Wednesday, October 1, 2014
Please note that your high school guidance counselor will need to submit a copy of your transcript, a letter of recommendation and your school’s profile. When you submit your application, an email will be automatically generated to your counselor requesting these materials. Please make sure that your counselor submits these materials by the application deadline for the Prologue session to which you are applying.
If you have previously applied for the Preface to Bates Program in the spring, then please check the box at the top of the application indicating that this is the case. Your guidance counselor will still need to submit an updated transcript for you and answer a few other questions but will not need to submit another letter of recommendation nor another school profile to support your application.
