Admission Requirements

You must have a minimum cumulative grade point average (GPA) of 3.0 from a regionally accredited high school to begin consideration.

In addition, if your school is inside the US, you must submit SAT with a minimum of 1100 or a minimum ACT score of 24. GPA, SAT and ACT scores will vary by degree and major. Senior level courses should include specific subjects that are required for admission to your degree program and major of choice. Your school profile with grading scale should be included with documents, and all sent through Parchment/Naviance whenever possible. 

Possessing the minimum requirement does not guarantee admission.

If you wish to include a Personal Statement, please use our Student Profile Form.

Applying

Students should ensure that senior year final grades from first semester and second semester interim grades, along with grades 9-11, are submitted by the March 1 document deadline date (or February 1 for early consideration)

While we may continue to accept applications and documents after the deadline, we cannot guarantee availability of space in programs or scholarships. Offers of admission will be made on a rolling basis as files become complete whenever possible.

If you are an international applicant from another curriculum or country, please consult the Country Specific Admission Requirements.

Out-of-Country Canadians in U.S. high schools are evaluated for admission and scholarships using both the U.S. GPA and the SAT or ACT, not percentages nor GPA alone.

Transfer Students

If you are an American curriculum applicant who has previously attended college or university and will receive more than 2.00 credits upon admission, please consult our International Transfer Students Admission Requirements.
