Admission Requirements for Adult and Non-Traditional Students

If you are a first-time freshman age 25 or older, you are not required to meet the Board of Regents' minimum admission criteria for freshman. However, you must meet the standardized test score requirements for traditional first-time freshmen (ACT, SAT, or ACCUPLACER). Students must pass BOTH ACCUPLACERS (english and elementary algebra). You’ll also need to provide high school transcripts or proof of high school graduation.
