How To Apply
We ask for your patience as we process the high volume of mail, email and phone calls during this application period. Please monitor the receipt of your documents through LionLinks as they are updated daily. Please do not send your information a second time either through email, the mail or fax as this only slows down the process. Thank you.
- Start your application with the Applicant Information Form (AIF).
Online submission is required. You are encouraged to submit the AIF well before the deadline of January 15. The application fee is $50 for U.S. and $100 for international applicants.

- If you are a musician and are interested in providing additional information to our music faculty, please do so using the Applicant Music Supplement Form. You may share an audio or video recording of your performance by including a link to the online material as instructed on the form. (This is the preferred method for sharing your information.) If necessary, you may send a CD or DVD clearly labeled with your name and instrument directly to the Admissions office. It will not be returned.
Exeter is committed to addressing sustainability in all aspects of school life. Therefore, we ask that you do not send copies of your certificates and awards. You may use the Extracurricular Activities space on the AIF to tell us about your achievements.
Online submission of the AIF and recommendations is strongly encouraged. If you prefer, the supporting documents of the application are available.
