Want to Know If You're Eligible?

It's easy! You only need to meet two of these requirements:

1.   Achieve a minimum overall high school GPA of 2.0 on a 4.0 scale.

2.   Graduate in the top half of your high school class.

3.  Achieve the NAIA's minimum test score requirement (only one score is required): 

  • 18 composite score on the ACT for tests taken before March 2016*
    *EXCEPTION: Per NAIA Bylaws V.C.2a, "For ACT tests taken beginning March 2016, a minimum score of 16 will satisfy this requirement. This exception will apply through the 2018-19 academic year, after which time the exception will expire."
  • 860 on the SAT (Evidence-Based Reading and Writing & Math)


NOTE 1: These are the eligibility requirements for entering freshmen with a break after high school of one year or less and who have never attended a university or post-secondary program.
