A freshman applicant is a student who is currently in high school or a student who has graduated from high school but has not enrolled in any accredited college or university since high school graduation. Freshman applicants who satisfy the course requirements will be evaluated on the basis of high school curriculum, grades, and SAT or ACT scores. These factors will be used to determine the applicant's probability of success during the freshman year. The average SAT score for entering freshman is approximately 1000 with a minimum GPA above a 3.0.
