Com­mu­nity col­leges

You don’t need to make cer­tain scores, but you should ful­fill the fol­low­ing re­quire­ments: Take re­quired high school classes and grad­u­ate from an ac­cred­ited high school or have a GED and take the ACT exam. Stu­dents who do not meet these re­quire­ments un­dergo a re­view of cog­ni­tive and noncog­ni­tive fac­tors. Cog­ni­tive fac­tors in­clude noted aca­demic ad­mis­sion stan­dards; qual­ity, quan­tity and level of course work through­out the en­tire high school pro­gram; com­ple­tion of a pro­gres­sively chal­leng­ing math se­quence, demon­strated by per­for­mance; and class rank taken in con­text with aca­demic rigor and class size of high school at­tended. Noncog­ni­tive fac­tors in­clude pos­i­tive self-con­cept, re­al­is­tic self­ap­praisal, long-term goals, lead­er­ship ex­pe­ri­ence, com­mu­nity and knowl­edge in an ac­quired field. Cog­ni­tive fac­tors will be weighted at 60 per­cent and noncog­ni­tive at 40 per­cent.

This score is valid for SATs ad­min­is­tered on or af­ter March 5, 2016. This score is based on Col­lege Board’s Con­cor­dance Ta­ble that was pub­lished on May 9, 2016. It is sub­ject to change.

This score is valid for SATs ad­min­is­tered be­fore March 5, 2016.

Ad­di­tional weight­ing (1.0) will be added to GPAs of stu­dents who take Ad­vanced Place­ment and higher-level In­ter­na­tional Bac­calau­re­ate cour­ses.

Stu­dents who do not meet op­tion 1 or op­tion 2 ad­mis­sion re­quire­ments are con­sid­ered for ad­mis­sion through a holis­tic ad­mis­sion re­view and se­lec­tion process. The holis­tic ad­mis­sion process con­sid­ers sev­eral fac­tors that pre­dict aca­demic suc­cess (high school GPA, high school course rigor, aca­demic en­gage­ment, writ­ing abil­ity, lead­er­ship and ACT/ SAT scores).

Note: If you want to go to a state univer­sity, but you don’t meet the course and grade re­quire­ments, ask your coun­selor about rightto-try pro­vi­sions.

For more in­for­ma­tion, con­tact your high school coun­selor or email darcher@ os­rhe.edu.
