Academic Standards

Students must have an ACT Science Reasoning test score of 28 or higher (this score is a standard minimum value that will be reviewed by committee and weighed against the science courses and programs applicant has completed. Applicants who have done more will have their ACT scored less heavily)

Students must earn at least a 3.5 cumulative GPA for all Science courses (Applicants will need to calculate their own GPA for Science coursework —- A = 4.000, A- = 3.667, B+ = 3.333, B = 3.000, B- = 2.667, etc.)

Students must have an overall cumulative GPA of at least 3.0 (highlight this on your transcript)

    • Required Courses: ​
      • Biology ( 1 credit) 
      • Chemistry (1 credit) 
      • Physics/Honors Physics (1 credit)
    • Additional Year Science Courses may be selected from the following list:
      • AP Chemistry (1 credit)
