Criteria for Consideration

Pending graduation from a state recognized high school, a student must have a minimum ACT composite score of 16 (with a GPA equal to or greater than 2.0/4 point scale) to be eligible. Admission requirements for the Office of Academic Services are on a sliding scale: lower ACT scores require a greater GPA, higher ACT scores allow a somewhat lower GPA, with a 2.0 minimum. We strongly recommend that all students who fall below the profile of 18-23 ACT and 2.6-3.3 cumulative grade point average submit personal statements and letters of support. Admittance with an ACT score less than 16 is dependent upon an appeal to the Committee on Admission and Graduation Standards (CAGAS) with either improved information, personal statement, letters of support, and/or documentation of severe extenuating circumstances.
