Admission at Rice University is an individualized and holistic admission process which examines the entirety of an applicant's academic prowess, creativity, motivation, artistic talent, leadership potential and life experiences.
We want a diverse, exciting student body, consisting of the best and brightest from across the country and around the globe. If you are a student excited by the opportunities and experiences we offer, we encourage you to apply to Rice.
Students wanting to spend a semester or a year at Rice taking courses for credit to be applied toward their undergraduate degree at another school can apply for admission as visiting students.
Visiting students (currently enrolled undergraduates) can take advantage of the smaller classes held at Rice during the summer months.
Students who already hold an undergraduate or graduate degree and would like to take courses at Rice for credit but not in a specific degree program may apply for the Visiting Post Baccalaureate Program.
