Admission Requirements

Students who have been out of high school for five or more years must complete an application and request that the following be submitted directly to the university:

  • High school transcripts showing graduation or GED scores
  • Transcripts from all colleges previously attended (whether credit was earned or not)

The admission policy of the University is based on the principle that only those who show promise of success are to be admitted to degree status.

A student may be admitted by the Director of Admissions by fulfilling the following criteria:

  1. A high school average 2.0/4.0 based on college preparatory courses; or successful completion of a GED
  2. A grade point average of 2.0 or above (0–4 quality point scale) from previous colleges; for students transferring more than 24 hours, the high school GPA requirement is waived
  3. Résumé demonstrating increased levels of professional responsibility
  4. Satisfactory interview with an advisor

If a student does not meet each of the above requirements, his/her file may be forwarded to the Admissions Committee for individual consideration. The Committee then decides the student’s status from the following alternatives: unconditional admission, conditional admission, or rejection. The Committee reserves the right to limit the number of credit hours for which a student may register and/or restrict the student from attending accelerated classes.

Finish even faster.

Transfer credits, credit for prior learning assessments, and military experience can help you save on credit hours.
