Rider practices rolling admissions. Once your application is complete, you will be notified of your decision. Applications completed after the stated deadlines will be considered on a space-available basis.

**To be considered for the maximum amount of scholarships for which you are eligible, your application must be complete, including all required credentials.  If you are applying to a major that requires an audition, auditions scheduled for an audition day after January 15 will not disqualify you from full scholarship consideration.
