Apportionment of Admission Offers

The percentage of admission spaces reserved for freshman and transfer applicants will be determined by the availability of courses and teaching resources necessary for each group.

Selection Methodology: Freshman Applicants 

  • An index score is calculated based on grade point average and SAT or ACT scores.
  • Once an index score has been computed for each student, a minimum index score and (possibly) a minimum SAT math score or equivalent ACT math score will be used to match qualifying applications with the available number of freshman admission spaces.
  • A faculty committee will evaluate students with academics near the impaction minimum to ensure those with remarkable backgrounds or experiences receive admission consideration.

Selection Methodology: Lower Division Transfer Applicants

  • An index score is calculated based on high school grade point average and SAT or ACT scores.
  • Once an index score has been computed for the high school careers of each student and the available college GPA has been calculated, a minimum score and/or GPA will be used to match qualifying applications with the available number of lower-division transfer admission spaces.
  • If possible, a faculty committee will evaluate students with academics near the impaction minimum to ensure those with remarkable backgrounds or experiences receive admission consideration.

Selection Methodology: Upper Division Transfer Applicants 

  • Once applicants have been sorted based on College GPA, a minimum GPA will be used to match qualifying applications with the available number of upper division transfer admission spaces.
  • If possible, a faculty committee will evaluate students with academics near the impaction minimum to ensure those with remarkable backgrounds or experiences receive admission consideration.
