Franciscan University of Steubenville does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national or ethnic origin, sex, age, disability, or veteran’s status (or any other criteria protected by applicable law) in its educational programs and activities or admissions.

Since no single factor determines admission, the University bases its decision on satisfactory high school records and recommendations and satisfactory entrance examination scores in view of the student’s proposed major. Outstanding applicants may be given careful consideration even though their secondary school curriculum does not conform to the required course pattern.

Students admitted to the University are encouraged to make student life on campus a rewarding experience and to cultivate an interest in maintaining the ideals of a Catholic liberal arts college.
