U.S.-Patterned Education

Minimum Admission Requirements: U.S. Senior Year/Grade 12 in an accredited high school with a high grade point average. We expect competitive applicants to be enrolled in a rigorous academic course load and to have taken the highest level of course available to them in prerequisite subjects. 

Test optional assessment has been adopted for students applying for Fall 2023 and 2024 admission. Students who cannot or choose not to submit test results will not be disadvantaged in the admissions process; however, students who have completed the SAT or ACT are encouraged to submit their scores.

Prerequisite subjects, including English, should be presented at Senior Year/Grade 12 level or AP/IB. SAT Subject Tests cannot be used to satisfy prerequisites. Calculus 12 or AP Calculus or one semester of college or university calculus is required for most math, science, computer science, and commerce programs. Precalculus cannot be used to satisfy the calculus prerequisite. AP Statistics does not provide the appropriate preparation.

SAT, ACT and AP scores should be sent to us electronically. SAT and AP institution code is 0982 and ACT institution code is 5366.
