Freshman Admission Criteria

Candidates will be considered on the basis of overall strength of academic preparation (a minimum of 12 academic units must be taken), grades in individual subjects, overall high school average, and SAT or ACT scores. Applicants who have taken the General Equivalency Diploma (GED) examination must submit test scores and can be eligible provided they have taken the required academic units in high school.

The college recommends four years of English, four years of social studies, three years of mathematics, two years of a foreign language, two years of laboratory sciences, and one year of performing or visual arts as the academic preparation needed for success in college.
