Unconditional Admission – New Freshman
Applicants are normally granted unconditional admission status if their academic record demonstrates the following:
- A minimum of 16 units of high school credit.
- A college-preparatory course of study with:
- three or four years of English and mathematics
- two or three years of science and social studies
- two years of a foreign language (highly recommended)
- Average or above average grades in English and mathematics,
- A cumulative GPA of 2.25 on a 4.0 scale
- Composite ACT of 17 or higher (or combined SAT I of 810 or higher)
- PGPA (Predictive Grade Point Average) of 43 or higher
(PGPA = High School GPA x 10) + ACT Composite Score
Conditional Admission/The Bridge Program
Applicants with high school records or test scores that do not meet all unconditional admission standards are reviewed individually by the Admissions Committee, and may be granted admission if there is other evidence of academic promise that shows the determination and discipline needed to succeed in college. Such students are required to participate in the Bridge Program. They will have special advising and may register for no more than 15 credit hours including the Bridge course, Academics 101.
All students admitted who do not meet the specified sub-scores on the ACT or SAT I test will be required to take additional preparatory courses during the freshman year. These courses give the necessary background in English and mathematics to do college-level work.
