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.

Top Quarter No Minimum No Minimum
Second Quarter 1050 22

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.
