When your application arrives in the admission and financial aid office, our committee reviews it for admission to the academic major or program you selected. The quality of your academic record is shown by your:
- Grade record and pattern throughout high school.
- Selection of courses in preparation for college.
- Class standing or ranking.
- ACT or SAT scores. (Learn more about our SAT policy for 2017 applicants.)
The admission committee also considers the recommendation of your high school guidance counselor, along with other factors, including your demonstrated interest in the University, which could be shown by attending an official campus visit or event in your area. Over the past several years, we have experienced a significant increase in the number and academic quality of applicants to the University. Based on the overall academic quality of applicants, along with the requirements for a particular major or division, the admission committee may choose to admit students to a different academic program.
Balanced consideration is given to all aspects of your college preparation. While no minimum grade point average, class rank or standardized test score is specified, these measures must provide evidence of your readiness for college studies in your chosen academic program.
Priority notifications will be mailed in mid-December, and regular notifications will be mailed later in the spring. To receive priority notification regarding your admission and scholarship decision, you must apply by the early action date as well as visit campus and file the FAFSA.
