Academic Credentials

For students graduating high school in spring 2021 and applying for freshman admission for the fall 2021 term, test scores (ACT/SAT) are optional due to testing limitations caused by COVID-19.  You may submit scores if you have them and would like them included in your admission file, but they are not a required component of the application.
 
The average academic credentials for students admitted to the Fall 2020 freshmen class were:
 

  • Average GPA (Middle 50%) = 3.73 - 4.0
  • Average ACT (Middle 50%) = 29 - 32
  • Average SAT (Middle 50%) = 1300 – 1410
