First-Year Students

Start here if you are in high school or have never attended a college or university. Learn more about why Russell Sage may be right for you, as well as the admissions process and requirements.


Undergraduate applications are processed on a rolling basis each year and continuing through the following summer. Rolling Admissions for all programs means that you typically get a decision within a couple days from when your application is complete.


If you’re an undergraduate with some college credit already, it’s easy to transfer to Russell Sage College. We have articulation agreements with many area colleges to make it even easier. Let’s get started.


If you are finishing or have already finished your bachelor’s, we invite you to learn more about our graduate programs in education, business and health sciences, as well as the admissions process.


If you are not a citizen or permanent resident of the U.S., you will need to apply as an international student. Russell Sage College is a diverse and welcoming community where you can thrive. International students will require an F-1 student visa to enroll.


We’re dedicated to providing a comprehensive array of programs, support services and advocacy for veterans, active military personnel and their family members.

Evening, Weekend and Online

If you’re an adult student looking to take courses or complete your degree, our evening undergraduate degree, certificate and professional development programs are designed with your needs in mind. Attend in-person part-time, fully online or a combination of both.
