Secondary School Preparation
The Admissions Committee places emphasis on the quality of the preparatory work of each applicant.
An applicant should be a graduate of a regionally accredited secondary school and should present sixteen acceptable units of academic work, including four units in English, three units in Mathematics, two units in a lab science, two units in the social sciences and a minimum of five electives. An applicant who has not satisfied the distribution of college requirements, but has presented convincing evidence of the quality of his/her high school work, may be admitted provisionally.
Students are admitted for both the Fall and Spring terms. Should a student be unable to enter the University during the term for which admission is granted, the offer of acceptance will remain open for one calendar year. Students must notify the Office of Admissions if it is their intention to defer their enrollment.
