Admission Requirements

UPDATE: Guidelines for the remainder of Summer 2020 and Fall 2020 application cycles.

High school Juniors and Seniors, Home Schooled students (having completed coursework equivalent for Junior standing), or students attending an Unaccredited High School (having completed coursework equivalent to Junior standing), who have an unweighted GPA of 3.0 or higher, qualify for admission to concurrent enrollment and meet the Reading proficiency requirement.

If a student has an ACT/SAT score that would require alternative testing for placement or if a student has been unable to test (ACT/SAT/ACCUPLACER placement test) due to the cancellation of all national testing opportunities, the following interim guidelines will be used:

  • Reading placement equivalency: High school cumulative GPA of 3.0 or higher.
  • English placement equivalency: High school English GPA of 3.0 or higher
  • Math placement equivalency:  High school Math GPA of 3.0 or higher
  • Science placement equivalency: High school Science or Math and English GPA of 3.0 or higher

Students with ACT/SAT scores that both meet admission requirements and placement requirements, as described below, are not impacted by these interim guidelines.
