    Be passionate! Whether you'll be majoring in design, business, engineering, or are undecided about what you'd like to do, take classes in high school which will further your educational goals. Apply early! Although PhilaU uses the 'rolling admissions' system, in which you should receive a decision between 4 and 6 weeks after Admissions receives all your materials, our seats and our housing can fill up quickly. The sooner you get in, the sooner you can make a decision! Visit campus! Whether you come for a daily visit with a tour, a Saturday Information Session, or one of our three annual University Open Houses, you will be able to obtain all the information you need about PhilaU and have all your questions answered. I visited the school at least four times, and it was a large factor in making my decision to come here!
