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?

Fewer Than 30 Credit Hours

  • High school diploma or equivalent
  • A GPA of 2.0 on a 4.0 scale
  • SAT score of at least 1,000 if taken after March 2016 or
    • We only take: 1) evidence-based reading & writing and 2) math
  • ACT score of 19 or
  • THEA score of 230 on the Reading and Mathematics sections and 220 on the Writing section

Students with fewer than 30 semester hours must also provide a high school transcript, so an equivalent university GPA can be computed.

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.

More than 30 Credit Hours

  • All college transcripts
  • A GPA of at least 2.0 on a 4.0 scale

Academic programs may have additional requirements for entrance, and students are subject to review by the dean of the appropriate school for admission approval.

What are the GED requirements?
