Freshman Students

Our Doors are Always Open.


Freshmen students come from all over the state and throughout the world, from every culture and ethnicity and from across the economic spectrum. Every year, they arrive on our campuses nearly 40,000 strong — ready for challenge and discovery.

So, who do we consider to be a prospective freshman? You're a freshman applicant if you're currently in high school or have graduated from high school, but not enrolled in a regular session at a college or university after high school graduation.

While we recognize that each student is unique, with different strengths and life experiences, all prospective freshmen need to display academic rigor and meet the same minimum requirements to be considered for admission.
