Non-Traditional Student

Any applicant who has been graduated from high school for three (3) years or longer and has completed fewer than 12 hours of college-level coursework will receive Regular Admission if the applicant has a cumulative high school grade point average of 2.85 or above on a 4.0 scale. Although American College Test (ACT) scores are not required for non-traditional applicants, a high school graduate will also receive Regular Admission with a composite score of 19 or above on the ACT.

A non-traditional applicant who has not graduated from high school may be granted Regular Admission upon passing the General Education Development Test (GED) with a score of 500 or above.

An applicant who does not meet the requirements for Regular Admission is eligible for Qualified Admission if he or she is a high school graduate with a cumulative GPA of 2.0 or above or has passed the GED with a score of 450-490.

The high school unit requirements and the ACT test scores are not required for non-traditional applicants.
