Freshman Admissions

Freshman Admissions

A student applying for admission as a freshman must be a graduate of an accredited secondary school or a state approved home-school, or hold a high school equivalency diploma. They must also have at least 16 units of high school credit including four units of English. It is also recommended that applicants have three units of mathematics, two units of science, two units of history, and two units of foreign language. All freshman applicants under the age of 21 are required to submit SAT and or ACT results as well. The areas considered when reviewing freshman applications include:

  • cumulative grade point average
  • high school course selection
  • standardized test scores
  • class rank
  • extracurricular involvement
  • teacher or personal recommendations

All prospective student files are reviewed on an individual basis and admission is offered to those students who, in the professional judgement of the Admissions Staff and the University faculty, appear to be prepared academically for success at the University. This decision involves careful weighing of all criteria listed above.

A complete freshman admissions file includes:

  • Completed application for admission
  • Official high school transcript or high school equivalency results. If the student attended a high school outside of the U.S. or a U.S. territory, the transcript must be translated and evaluated for U.S. equivalency by a National Association of Credential Evaluation Services member
  • SAT or ACT scores
  • $50 application fee (application fee waived for online applicants)

Although Methodist University has a rolling admissions deadline, we encourage students to apply as early as possible. Once a file is complete it is typically read, and students are notified of their status, within seven to fourteen days. We welcome qualified applicants for the fall or spring semester.
