Thanks for your interest in Rose-Hulman!

For high school juniors
Tell your high-achieving juniors about our intensive, hands-on summer program: Operation Catapult. They'll live on campus and get a feel for what engineering education is all about. Learn more about Operation Catapult.

Being a reference
Has a student asked you to write a letter of recommendation for his or her Rose-Hulman application? When you write your letter, please keep in mind that our students must have strong teamwork, cooperation and leadership skills. We look for well-rounded individuals, so any specificity you can provide on those skills will help in our decision process.

Test Scores

Please be advised that Rose-Hulman does not accept ACT or SAT scores from high school transcripts. Students will need to request that scores be sent directly from ACT or the College Board. Electronic score reports can sometimes take up to 10 days to arrive after being ordered. 

Fee Waivers

If a student is seeking a fee waiver for the admissions application based on criteria listed on the Common Application, verification must be sent from the high school using the fee waiver form in the Common Application.
