    General Admission Requirements

    Students who enter the College must possess a high school diploma or its equivalent, or be eighteen years of age or older.

    If your high school GPA was a 3.0 or higher, and you have graduated within the past five years, you will not be required to take the Accuplacer placement test. Furthermore, Accuplacer placement testing is not required if you have the following SAT and/or ACT scores less than 5 years old:

    SAT: Critical Reading - 480  Math - 540

    ACT: English - 21  Math - 23

    The Admissions Office uses these scores as guidelines in the student acceptance process.

    Within budget, space, and personnel limitations, applicants not meeting curriculum placement criteria shall be, at their discretion, placed in an appropriate program of developmental study.
