Admissions Requirements

Freshman applicants who have successfully completed a college preparatory high school curriculum at a regionally accredited high school with a minimum GPA of 2.5 will generally be admitted to Brenau University.  Evidence of satisfaction of this requirement shall only be in the form of an official transcript from authorized school personnel or an official G.E.D. certificate.

All home schooled students will be asked to complete an interview as well.

Submission of SAT/ACT scores, while not a requirement for admission, will be considered if submitted for higher scholarship consideration and also may be required of athletes for eligibility. SAT/ACT scores can be used for English placement. Scores must be sent directly from the testing company.

Transfer applicants who present a minimum GPA of 2.0 will ordinarily be granted admission. Students who have successfully completed over 30 semester hours of college level work at a regionally accredited post-secondary institution may be exempt from the need to submit high school transcripts. Evidence of satisfaction of these requirements shall only be in the form of an official, sealed transcript from authorized school personnel or an official, sealed G.E.D. certificate. Some programs have more stringent cumulative GPA requirements. Applicants should consult the appropriate section of this Catalog for further admissions information. Students may be admitted to advanced standing on the basis of work completed at other regionally accredited colleges. Satisfactory enrollment and completion of course work at other institutions is evidence of a student’s ability to do university-level work. Brenau encourages applications from these prospective students in the belief that its academic programs and personnel can assist them in completing their baccalaureate programs. These students add desirable diversity and heterogeneity to the student body. Applicants for advanced standing shall submit an official, sealed transcript and some applicants will be asked to submit a statement of good academic standing from each institution previously attended. Transfer students generally must be in good standing as of the date of application. In some cases, letters of recommendation may be submitted or requested, in addition to the other documents.Please visit the Brenau University Catalog for more information about the Transfer Credit Policy.
