Standardized Testing

I am turning the page and looking towards the application cycles for spring and fall 2014.  My next couple of posts will address components of the application that students seem to miss or fail to address until it is deadline time.  First up, standardized testing.  We like standardized testing for our transfers.

We require standardized testing of most of our applicants.

-The SAT or ACT or TOEFL (for students whose first language is not english) is required for ANYONE applying under the GAA (no matter how old you are, no matter how many credits or associate degrees you have, and no matter how long you have been out of high school)

-The SAT or ACT or TOEFL is required for anyone who graduated from high school less than five years ago.  That's 2008-2012 for spring 2014 (2013 HS grades cannot apply for spring) applicants and 2009-2013 for fall 2014 applicants. Applicants are rejected simply because they are missing this required document.

-We accept the TOEFL or IELTS for students whose first language is not English.  We're looking for a 90 (100 for Commerce) or above on the TOEFL or 7.0 or above on the IELTS.

**Plan your testing schedule to fit in with application deadlines.  We'll accept the October SAT/TOEFL/IELTS test for spring 2014 and as late as the March date for the SAT/ACT/TOEFL/IELTS**

The Wait is Over

We have closed the waiting list.  You should receive an email this evening and this is our final decision.

We know that the wait can be exhausting, so we appreciate your patience and understanding. This will come as a disappointment for many of you, but on the wee little bright side, the wait is over. 

Thanks again for your interest and your attention to the blog.

The deadline for spring admission is less than three months away. Stay tuned.

Signing off for now...
