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 pre-requisite subjects.
Test optional assessment has been adopted for students applying for Fall 2022 and 2023 admission. Students who cannot or choose not to submit test results will not be disadvantaged in the admissions process; however, students who have written SAT or ACT tests previously, and wish to have these considered in their assessment, are encouraged to submit their scores. We recognize that students who submit SAT or ACT results may have experienced interruptions in their preparations for these tests, and that testing opportunities have been (and continue to be) limited in many locations. Results will be considered in this context.
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 1 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.
