Admissions Programs

The following criteria are considered when selecting candidates for unconditional admission.  However, other factors also taken into consideration are recommendation letters, extracurricular activities, church involvement, and a personal interview.

  1. Satisfactory scores on either the American College Test (ACT) or Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT).  No particular score is a guarantee of admittance; however, priority is given to students who score an ACT composite of at least 20 or an SAT score of at least 1030.
  1. Graduation from an accredited U.S. high school or satisfactory completion of the General Educations Diploma (GED) examination.  The student’s transcript should demonstrate the following:
    1. At least a 2.6 average on a 4.0 scale.
    2. A satisfactory class rank based on the standards of the particular high school attended.

Note to homeschool applicants:
A homeschool student must have completed a secondary school education in a homeschool setting that is treated as a homeschool under state law.  If the state law does not require a homeschool student to obtain a homeschool credential, the student must have completed a secondary education in a homeschool setting that qualifies as an exemption from compulsory school attendance requirements under state law (which is age 16 in the state of Arkansas), OR satisfactorily have completed the General Educations Diploma (GED) examination.

The student’s homeschool transcript should demonstrate the following:

    1. At least a 2.6 cumulative average on a 4.0 scale.
    2. Individual course and grade break down for all completed courses.
    3. A calculated cumulative high school GPA.

Any applicants deficient in one of the admissions criteria (ACT or SAT, GPA) may be admitted under condition or probation but will have restrictions placed on their enrollment.  Students admitted under condition or probation will be required to participate in the Freshman Focus Program and to achieve a GPA of 1.5 or higher, on 12 semester hours at the end of the first semester to avoid academic suspension.

Applicants with an ACT composite score less than 17, or a high school GPA less than 2.25 will be denied admission.
