General Admission Requirements

Prospective students must have graduated from a secondary school, possess an equivalent diploma, or have successfully completed the US General Education Development (GED) exam (minimum total score 225, no score below 40 on any of the five tests).

The minimum acceptable secondary school grade point average must be 2.50 or higher on the standard 4.0 scale. We also require a minimum composite score of 18 on the Enhanced American College Test (ACT) or a minimum of 400 on each individual score on the Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT).
