How long does it take?

We begin reviewing your application once we’ve received all of your paperwork. We'll mail you a decision letter in one to two weeks.

What are the requirements?
  • A GPA of 2.5 or above on a 4.0 scale
  • SAT score of at least 1,000 if taken after March 2016 
    • We only take two scores: 1) evidence-based reading & writing and 2) math
  • or an ACT score of 19

Recommended Class Units

  • English: 4
  • Mathematics: 4
  • Social Sciences (includes 1 unit of American history): 3.5
  • Natural Science: 3
  • Foreign language: 2
  • Electives: 8
  • Vocational Units (non-academic): No more than 2

We'll accept both the new SAT (taken March 2016 and after) as well as the previous SAT.

We have good news. We'll take your best scores from every standardized test you've taken and average them together. That's called your "super score." Keep in mind; we can't create a super score with an old and new version of the test.

What are the GED requirements?

If you did not graduate from high school, you'll need an average score of 500 on the GED exam. Once you've taken the test, mail a copy of the GED certificate and the official report of test with your application.
