  • Students in the 12th grade to determine eligibility for guaranteed admissions or if not eligible, to engage through the general admissions process.

  • Requirements:

  • A cumulative GPA of 3.0 or higher, and

  •  Completion of the College Academic Distribution Requirements (CADRs). If a student meets the criteria or is on track to meet the criteria by high school completion, he/she/they are guaranteed admission to the institution.
