College Admissions Requirements

Preparing for College

Admission to college is generally competitive and that a maximum rather than a minimum course of study is recommended.  The single most important factor in admissions decisions is your academic record. The overall rigor of your course selection, types of course you select, as well as the number of years you study a subject and the grades you earn, are the primary importance.  Additional consideration will be given to the student’s class rank, GPA, co-curricular involvement, SAT and/or ACT scores. It is further recommended that students work closely with their school counselor in making plans for the future. This will help to insure that course selections are appropriate for your goals.  The following chart generalizes recommended admissions requirements for various post-secondary options.
