Admissions

The Administration reviews all applications and determines if the student meets the requirements and standards for placement in Silliman Institute.

A pre-registration period for existing students is held during the spring semester. Registration forms and fees must be returned by the last day of the registration period. This deadline is important to determine places available when registration is opened to new students.
