Freshman Admission Requirements: Students are eligible for admission based on an applicant's Admission Decision Score. This score is calculated as follows: (ACT Composite) (10) + (CUM GPA) (200) = ADS. Applicants with an admission decision score of 549 or higher meet full admission requirements. Applicants with an Admission Decision Score between 450 and 548 meet admission requirements and are eligible for admission through the university's Wentworth Scholars program. If the student is 18 years of age or older, they can be considered for admission upon successful completion of the GED.
