Admission Policies

Admission Policy for Freshmen

A freshman applicant may be considered academically eligible for admission to Trevecca Nazarene University when the following two conditions are met:

  1. A high school grade point average of 2.5 or above based on a 4.0 scale.
  2. An ACT composite score of 18 or above, or SAT Critical Reading + Math score of 860 or above.

If only one of the admissions conditions is met, a freshman applicant may be reviewed for admission on restriction.

Restrictions are:

  1. A study skills course is required during the first semesters of enrollment.
  2. The student's progress will be monitored through interviews and regular progress reports under the supervision of the associate director of academic services for the Center for Leadership, Calling, and Service.
  3. All developmental courses required by placement testing will be taken in specified sequence.

Restriction will be lifted when study skills and all developmental courses are completed successfully.

Admission for High School Graduates

Students graduating from high school must have a regular diploma or higher. High school certificates of attendance, special diplomas or the like are not sufficient for admission. Students falling into this category may be admitted on the basis of passing a GED (see section on Admission of Non-High School Graduates by GED) and submitting ACT or SAT scores under the condition of the Freshman Admissions Policy listed above (ACT composite score of 18 or above; SAT Critical Reading + Math of 860 or above).

Freshman admission requirements include graduation with a least 15 units of credit from an approved secondary school. It is recommended that for the best preparation for college, secondary school credits should include:

  • English—4 units
  • Mathematics—2 units
  • Foreign Language—2 units
  • Natural Science—1 unit
  • Social Science—2 units

This background provides a broad foundation for college studies.
