The chief qualities sought in a candidate are their intellectual preparation, the seriousness of their purpose, and their moral integrity. The school record is considered the most reliable measure of potential college ability. However, extracurricular accomplishments may strengthen an application insofar as they indicate special talents, perseverance, and maturity.

Applications for admission are reviewed on an individual basis, and minor deficiencies in preparation may be waived if justified by superior marks, test scores, and recommendation.

All successful applicants are expected to complete at least 16 units of secondary school course work that will include the following:

  • 4 years of English
  • 3 years of Mathematics (algebra, advanced algebra or the equivalent, and geometry)*
  • 2 years of the same foreign language
  • 2 years of science (at least one laboratory) *
  • 2 years of social studies (at least 1 year of U.S. history)
