What do we look for in applicants?
A freshman applicant is a person who has not attended a regionally accredited college or university beyond high school. If you have taken college classes while still enrolled in high school, you are still considered a freshman.
Freshman admission is based on overall performance in high school courses, grades in the 19 core courses that are required for admission, and SAT (evidence-based reading and writing plus math) and/or ACT scores. If you take a test more than once, we will consider your best score. The following high school courses are required for admission:
