General Admissions

Entrance Requirements and Recommendations


To be admitted as a first-time freshman, the applicant must present a transcript showing graduation from high school or GED, and the score and percentile achieved on the ACT or SAT. Home schooled students will be admitted using the same criteria. However, home schooled students seeking Federal Financial Aid will be required to sumbit an officially recognized high school diploma or equivalent.

To be admitted on regular freshman status, an applicant must have scored at or above 20 on the ACT or 950 SAT test, have a high school cumulative grade-point average at or above 2.5 (excluding remedial course work). In addition to the academic criteria outlined above, an applicant must submit two references: one from a high school counselor or teacher, the other from a church leader (pastor, youth pastor, or Sunday School teacher).


The Admissions Office is responsible for determining the overall "fit" of an applicant with the University. Academic, social, and spiritual factors are considered. It is helpful for the applicant to provide as much relevant information as possible in determining whether there is a good match between the applicant and the University.
