Admission decisions for first-year students are made on the basis of several combined factors including: 

  • Final grades in all subject areas for grades nine, ten, and eleven of high school
  • Weighted average or class rank for students who have taken AP/Honors courses
  • Required Carnegie (high school) units
  • Standardized test scores (SAT or ACT)

Approximately two-thirds of the decision for each student is based upon the high school grade-point average (GPA). The remaining one-third of the decision is based on other factors, including the following ACT and SAT scores:
