Applications may also be submitted between February 1 and May 1, and will be considered if all available positions have not been filled in the first round of admissions.
  • Applicants should have completed at least 42 semester credit hours of college coursework before applying and/or have a plan in place to reach at least 57 credit hours of coursework before beginning the junior-and-senior level coursework in the department.

  • To be considered for admission to the BHS program, a cumulative grade point average (GPA) of 2.75 on a four-point scale and a composite ACT score of 22 or higher are recommended.

Meeting these criteria does not guarantee acceptance into the program.
