Admission 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.

All home schooled applicants will be asked to complete an interview.

Undergraduate Admission on Probationary Status: Undergraduate applicants that have been reviewed but do not meet minimum admission requirements to the university, may be admitted on a probationary status. Students admitted on probationary status must earn a minimum grade average of 2.0 in their first 12 semester hours at Brenau University to be removed from probationary status.
