Information for First-Time Freshmen
High School Requirements
For automatic admission as a freshman, you must meet the class rank and minimum SAT or ACT score. Students with no class rank will be reviewed individually. Please refer to the chart below.
FRESHMAN ADMISSION CRITERIA, Fall 2012-Spring 2013
|Rank in High School Graduating Class||Minimum Acceptable SAT Score||Minimum Acceptable ACT Score|
|Top Quarter||No Minimum||No Minimum|
|Third Quarter||Individual Review||Individual Review
|Fourth Quarter||Individual Review||Individual Review|
|Home School/No Rank*||1100||24|
SAT scores are calculated by adding the highest Critical Reading score with the highest Math score.
The National SAT and ACT tests’ writing section is required for admission but will not be used as a criterion for acceptance. The cumulative scores in the table above are based upon the Critical Reading and Mathematical sections of the SAT, and the English, Mathematics, Reading, and Science sections of the ACT.
* Students from schools that do not rank must have a minimum 3.0 unweighted GPA.
Meeting the above minimum university admissions requirements does not guarantee admission. In addition, students who are granted admission to the university are not guaranteed admission to a specific academic program.
