To Apply


Application materials were posted on January 4, 2021.
Students may initiate the Ross application process by visiting, creating a Ross account, and completing the forms posted there. The application asks for demographic information, school transcripts, letter of recommendation, responses to several essay prompts, and uploaded solutions to some mathematical problems.

Common technical problem: The system says:   User not found.
That usually means that the session cookie has expired.
The solution: Logout from the Ross system (click on your own email address at the upper-right), then login again.

Applicants who have technical troubles or other questions about the application process are welcome to email
