Students who choose to take the General Educational Development (GED) or the High School Equivalency Test (HiSET) examination will be considered for admission on the basis of their combined high school equivalency diploma test score and their ACT (or SAT) scores according to the table below.
Students who are 22 years of age or older and who have received a passing score on the GED or HiSET and thus received an equivalency diploma are exempt from the ACT/SAT requirement.
Students who have enrolled in another college or university subsequent to receiving their equivalency diploma will be considered for admission under the transfer admission policy.
