Apply: Freshmen and First-Year Students
Summer or Fall 2020 Applicants
Applying for summer or fall 2020 and don’t have your ACT/SAT scores due to COVID-19? That’s okay. You can still apply and will be considered for admission if you have a 2.75 GPA or higher.
You can also self-report your high school GPA and ACT/SAT scores on your application for a quicker admission decision. We can make a preliminary admission offer if you meet our admission guidelines. You’ll be asked to confirm your academic status by providing an official transcript and test scores (if you've taken the ACT/SAT) at a later date.
Apply early for more financial aid, scholarships, housing and class options.
