Admission Policy for Students with a High School Equivalency Diploma
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.
Students that are 22 years of age or older will qualify for admission once they have successfully passed and submitted an official score report for a high school equivalency diploma (GED or HiSET).
Students who have completed post-high school college credit will be considered for admission under the transfer admission policy.
