Entrance Requirements and Recommendations


Admission to a bachelor's degree program is based upon successful completion of a four-year secondary school program of college preparatory coursework. Primary consideration is given to the academic record, as demonstrated by the quality of candidates' secondary school course selections, academic achievement, recommendations, and the results of a College Entrance Examination Board Scholastic Assessment Test (SAT-I) or results from the American College Testing program (ACT). Strong consideration is given to character, initiative, leadership, and special talents.


Most successful candidates present at least four years of English and mathematics, four or more years of laboratory science, and two years of social science. Successful candidates generally complete at three years of study in a single foreign language or more than one year of study in each of two different languages. Recommended mathematics preparation includes algebra I, geometry, algebra II, trigonometry and pre-calculus.
