Admission Requirements

  • Incoming freshmen must have a solid B average (3.0 or 82-85 grade point average) and an average SAT score of 1000 (Critical Reading and Math combined) or ACT Composite of 20 or above. Transfer students must have completed more than 24 college credits. A minimum college G.P.A. of 2.0 is required for application review. When students have completed fewer than 24 credits, they must also submit high school transcripts and SAT/ACT scores.
  • Admission to the upper division of the B.A./M.S. in Criminal Justice program (master’s degree level) requires completion of at least 60 credits with a grade point average of no lower than 3.0 (B) overall and a major grade point average of no lower than 3.0 (B). Admission requires acceptance of the student by the chairman of the graduate program in the Department of Criminal Justice. If the student does not possess the necessary 3.0 average, the chairman may employ other criteria to insure qualification (e.g., SAT scores, letters of prior work, interview, etc.).
