Admission Requirements:

  • Preferred minimum grade point average = 2.5/4.0 scale
  • Preferred minimum ACT composite = 18/SAT combined score = 870

NOTE: Requirements are “preferred” since students with credentials below the minimum may be admitted to the College. The Office of Admission reviews each file individually and considers additional components such as the type of high school attended, extracurricular activities and letters of recommendation. There may be times that we may require additional information to support your admission file. Additional information may include ACT/SAT scores, seventh semester grades, academic letters of recommendation an additional visit to campus or a written personal statement from the applicant.
