Admission to the College - Undergraduate Programs

A minimum cumulative grade point average (GPA) of 2.00 on a 4.00 scale or General Education Development (GED) certificate with a minimum score of 450, and an ACT composite score of 18 or above or a 940 minimum redesigned SAT score (testing date of March 2016 or later; combination of Reading/Writing and Math) or an 860 minimum old SAT score (testing date prior to March 2016; minimum scores of 440 in the critical reading section and 420 in the math section), is required for admission to the College. The cumulative high school GPA is considered for first-time students, while the cumulative college GPA is considered for transfer students with 24 or more transferable credits (defined as any attempted college-level credit with the potential to transfer to the institution). In assessing ACT/SAT scores, the College uses the highest subscores taken from multiple test dates and recalculates a new composite superscore. This superscore is used only for admission to the College and does not pertain to other institutional policies. Certain programs have additional specific criteria for admission. Refer to the respective section in this catalog for any additional requirements. Individuals who are 24 years of age or older are not required to take the ACT for admission. However, an ACT score may be a requirement for admission to individual programs.
