4 years additional from areas above or foreign language, philosophy or comparative religion.

•Minimum required GPA:

Minimum GPA of 2.300 in those 16 core courses.

Competition sliding scale. (The full sliding scale can be found at www.eligibilitycenter.org under Resources.)

Minimum sum ACT or SAT (critical reading and math only) score that matches the 16 core-course GPA.

oExample: 2.500 core-course GPA requires 1000 SAT or 85 sum ACT.

oExample: 820 SAT or 68 sum ACT requires core-course GPA of 2.950.

 

Core-course progression.

Must complete 10 core courses before seventh semester of high school (e.g., senior year).

Of the 10 core courses completed, seven must be in the area of English, math, or science.

These 10 core courses become “locked in” for the purpose of GPA calculation.

oA repeat of one of the “locked in” courses will not be used if taken after the seventh semester begins.
