If you completed a non-traditional high school program:

For students completing high school or high school equivalence in a setting without a formal cohort, class rank cannot be used to meet initial freshman eligibility requirements. For example, class ranking cannot be used for GED and GED-like programs, self-paced, independent-study completion programs, or private candidates, irrespective of when groups of students initiated or completed these types of programs. These students are required to meet the cumulative GPA and SAT/ACT test score requirement.
