Admission Status

Unconditional admission is granted to first year students who attain an ACT composite score and subscores of 19 or above (or comparable SAT scores), and earn a cumulative high school grade point average of 2.50 or above, and transfer students who have maintained a minimum 2.00 cumulative grade point average. For course placement purposes, the highest ACT or SAT composite score is used (if the admission tests are taken more than once).

Conditional admission may be given to a student whose records fall below these requirements. Conditionally admitted students are required to participate in transitional programs and/or skill building courses during the first year. Students whose preparation or record is marginal may need more than four years to complete their program. Conditional admission may also be assigned to transfer or readmitted students who have not maintained good academic standing or satisfactory academic progress (see Academic Regulations and Procedures).

Provisional admission may be granted to students whose file may require additional documents or interviews, based on the academic or social record. Once the stated provisions have been fulfilled, full acceptance may be granted.
