ACT scores are based on best composite score. We will superscore across multiple ACT tests or SAT tests that are received (though not across the new and old SAT). All high school GPA's are recalculated (unweighted).

For students age 22 or older, or transferring in with 60+ credit hours, or who have conferred an associate’s degree from an accredited institution, the SAT and ACT score requirements may be waived if the waiver benefits the student.  Transfer awards range from $1,500 to $5,000 per year.

 

HONORS PROGRAM

The Honors Program provides opportunities for motivated students to join a community of like-minded peers and participate in classes which provide additional academic enrichment and rigor.
