Entering freshmen are selected on the basis of their high school grade point average and standardized test scores. For initial consideration, an entering freshman must have scored at least 22 on the American College Test (ACT) or an equivalent score on the Scholastic Aptitude Tests (SAT).
Participants entering after the first semester of the freshman year are selected on the basis of their cumulative grade point average and the recommendation of two faculty members.
The required average for second semester freshman, sophomores, and juniors is 3.00 or above. Seniors much have achieved an average of 3.25 or above.
