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.
  • 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.
  • A faculty committee will evaluate students with academics near the impaction minimum to ensure those with remarkable backgrounds or experiences receive admission consideration.

Additional Recommendation for Freshman and Transfer Applicants
