  • Academic Profileplus or minus

    Our preferred acceptance criteria for transfer students is:

    High school cumulative GPA of 3.0 or above on a 4.0 scale
    SAT score of 1000 (Old SAT - Math and Critical Reading) or above
    College cumulative GPA of 3.0 or above on a 4.0 scale

    Note that this profile is based on the math and critical reading scores from the “old SAT”. We will superscore, but only within the same exam type. For example, we will combine the best math score of the old test with the best critical reading score of the old test, but we will not combine a score from the old test with a score from the new test.

    We will review transcripts with GPA’s starting at 2.5 on a 4.0 scale. Transfer students who do not meet acceptance criteria as listed, but show reasonable promise of success in the chosen major, may be considered for probationary acceptance.

    This information is meant to be a helpful reference. It is not meant to guarantee your acceptance, nor is it meant to discourage students who fall outside of these ranges from applying.
