Beginning Freshmen

Beginning freshmen are defined as applicants who have attempted less than 24 credit hours of coursework at other colleges or universities.

1. Unconditional Admission

Beginning freshmen who are graduates from an accredited and /or state approved high school may be granted unconditional admission with proof of an acceptable test score (19 on the enhanced ACT or 910 on the SAT -1) and a minimum high school GPA of 2.00 on a 4.00 scale. Students at least 21 years of age are not required to submit ACT/SAT scores.

2. Conditional Admission

Conditional admission must be cleared at the campus where conditional admission is granted.

Any applicant who does not qualify for unconditional admission may enroll at Troy University as a conditionally admitted student by meeting the following criteria: If the high school GPA is less than 2.00 (on a 4.00 scale), the applicant must have a minimum composite score of 19 on the ACT or 910 on the SAT � 1.

If the applicant's composite score on the ACT is less than 19 (but at least 16) or less than 910 on the SAT -1 (but at least 780), he/she must have a cumulative high school GPA of 2.50 (on a 4.00 scale).

The conditionally admitted student will be permitted to carry a maximum course load of seven hours per accelerated semester until 24 hours of Troy University work are attempted. The student will follow a prescribed course of study designed to strengthen basic skills. Specific courses must be taken where weaknesses have been demonstrated.

Conditionally admitted students will be granted unconditional admission status within, or upon completion of, 24 semester credit hours at Troy University with an overall 2.00 GPA. Credits earned by a conditionally admitted student are recorded on the permanent record of the student and will apply, if applicable, toward a regular undergraduate degree program. Any conditional student who fails to attain a 2.00 GPA upon completion of 24 hours attempted at Troy University will be dropped from the program.

3. Unclassified

Applicants may appeal to the Dean of Enrollment Management, or the appropriate campus designee, for unclassified admission to Troy University. Students attending under unclassified admission status are not eligible for temporary admission and must submit all required documentation prior to completing the first semester (two accelerated semesters or terms), or will not be allowed to enroll in subsequent semesters or terms.

The maximum load for an unclassified student is 7 credit hours in an accelerated semester. In the event the final records indicate the student was not eligible for admission, coursework will be changed to audit, whether completed or in progress, and no refunds will be given and no academic credit awarded.
