When you apply to the College of Arts & Sciences, your application is reviewed by an admissions committee that conducts an extensive review of your materials and takes into consideration your entire application package. As a result, we cannot begin the review process until all application materials are received.
Students must demonstrate through their admissions package that they are well-prepared for the rigor of our academic programs because of our strong emphasis on academic quality. Our admission committee does not exclude or discourage applicants based on GPA, class rank, test scores, or any other single academic qualification, but students must provide some evidence of their ability to be successful in a rigorous college program. We have found that students with a high school or college transcript with math and English grades of C or better have the best chance for acceptance and success in our academic programs.
Our admission committee is also interested in reviewing what you have accomplished since high school when evaluating your potential for admission, since it may have been some time since you attended high school. A resume that shows job stability, advancement, and positions that require an individual to understand complex ideas and articulate them to others have the best chance for acceptance.
If you are unsure about your prospects of being accepted, you can discuss your background with one of our admissions counselors. They are available Monday through Thursday from 8 am to 8 pm, ET, and Fridays 8 am to 5 pm. Call them toll free at 888-718-1222.
