First-Year Admission Requirements

First-Year students are those applying directly from high school or those applying with fewer than 14 semester credits of transferable college work earned after high school graduation.

First-year students who graduate from a regionally accredited high school must meet all admission requirements in effect for the year they graduated.

 These students include:

  • Those enrolling directly from high school.
  • Those enrolling directly from high school who have completed college-level work while in high school.
Please note: Applicants with fewer than 14 transferable semester credits completed after high school graduation must also meet transfer GPA requirements.

Early admission may be granted based on a sixth or seventh semester high school transcript if it appears that the student will meet admission requirements.

You must submit:

  1. An application for admission.
  2. $60 application fee (nonrefundable).
  3. ACT or SAT test scores. You may request copies of your ACT or SAT scores. If your ACT or SAT scores are on your school transcript, you do not need to have them sent separately.
  4. Official high school transcript showing graduation date. If you have not yet graduated from high school, a transcript showing all completed work may be accepted for early admission.
  5. Official transcripts from any colleges or universities attended.

Academic requirements:

If you do not meet the published criteria for admission at the time of review, you may apply to the Admissions Committee for consideration.

First-Year students who have completed their GED instead of graduating from an accredited high school and have earned fewer than 14 transferable semester credits since obtaining their GED will have their application for admission referred to the Admissions Committee for a decision.

You must submit:

  1. An application for admission.
  2. $60 application fee (nonrefundable).
  3. ACT or SAT test scores. You may request copies of your ACT or SAT scores. If your ACT or SAT scores are on your school transcript, you do not need to have them sent separately.
  4. A copy of the GED test results.
  5. Official high school transcript showing the work completed. (Note: high school transcripts are required from any high school attended even though the student did not graduate.)
  6. Official transcripts from any colleges or universities attended.
  7. Three signed letters of recommendation from individuals who can attest to the student's academic ability.
  8. A written statement from the student which includes the student's goals, educational and/or professional objectives, an explanation of past academic performance, information and/or documentation regarding any extenuating circumstances, and any other information the student wishes to have considered.

Please note:  Applicants with fewer than 14 transferable semester credits completed since obtaining their GED must also meet the admission requirements for new transfers.

First-year students who have been home-schooled either partially or completely for grades nine through 12 and have earned fewer than 14 transferable semester credits since graduating from home-school will have their application for admission referred to the Admissions Committee for a decision.
You must submit:

  1. An application for admission.
  2. $60 application fee (nonrefundable).
  3. ACT or SAT test scores. You may request copies of your ACT or SAT scores. If your ACT or SAT scores are on your secondary school transcript, you do not need to have them sent separately.
  4. Home-school transcript or a description of your educational background including subjects studied.
  5. Official transcripts from any secondary school attended prior to or in addition to home schooling.
  6. A copy of the GED test results or a letter asking for a waiver of the GED requirement.

  9. A written statement from the student that includes the student's goals, educational and/or professional objectives, an explanation of past academic performance, information and/or documentation regarding any extenuating circumstances, and anything else the committee might find useful when reviewing your file.

Please note: Applicants with fewer than 14 transferable semester credits completed since graduating from home-school must also meet the admission requirements for new transfers.

First-year students who graduate from non-accredited high schools (high schools without accreditation from a regional accrediting agency such as the Northwest Association of Schools and Colleges) and have earned fewer than 14 transferable semester credits since graduating from high school will have their application for admission referred to the Admissions Committee for a decision.

You must submit:

  1. An application for admission.
  2. $60 application fee (nonrefundable).

A written statement from the student that includes the student's goals, educational and/or professional objectives, an explanation of past academic performance, information and/or documentation regarding any extenuating circumstances, and anything else the committee might find useful when reviewing your file.
Please note: Applicants with fewer than 14 transferable semester credits completed after high school graduation must also meet transfer GPA requirements.
