Options and Flexibility

Applying to college involves a lot of paperwork, plenty of organizational skills, and some time management. McDaniel gives you choices that meet your needs, a personal timeline and plenty of hands-on support to take the stress out of the process.


Choose between two application forms to complete your application for admission. The McDaniel Application is an easily accessible option you can begin immediately, and if you login with your personalized application link, it will be pre-populated with the information you’ve already given us. Don’t have your link? Simply request it here or start a new application now. The Common Application lets you complete one form and submit it simultaneously to each college. Choose whichever application works best for you.
