Admission decisions for first-year students are made on the basis of several combined factors including:
- Final grades in all subject areas for years nine, ten, and eleven of high school
- Weighted average or class rank for students who have taken AP/Honors courses
- Required Carnegie (high school) units
- Standardized test scores (SAT or ACT)
Approximately two-thirds of the decision for each student is based upon the high school grade-point average (GPA). The remaining one-third of the decision is based on other factors, which may include standardized verbal and math test scores, class rank, personal statement, and activities list.
