What are the freshman admission standards?

October 15th, 2009 by Jaime

High school curriculum and grades are the most important admission factors. Most admitted students present a gpa that ranges from 2.5 to 3.5 (on a 4.0 scale) in a traditional college prep curriculum of math (3 years), science (3 years), social studies (3 years), English (4 years), and a foreign language (2 years). While there is no minimum cut-off, the test scores of most admitted students range from 900 to 1100 on the SAT (Critical Reading + Math) and 19 to 24 on the ACT (Composite score). Recommendation, essay, personal qualities, and activities are also important.

“One of the greatest things that Plymouth State has to offer is, if you have an interest, not matter how small it is, there are ways to explore it here. If it’s not already concrete in stone in a club or in a class, then they make it really easy for you to take that interest and expand it and find other people interested in it too.”
