Special Admission

Applicants who do not possess the academic qualifications for a program may be admitted if evidence of probable success is established through a special admission assessment. 

Special admission does not apply to designated high-demand programs.

Program applicants are automatically considered for special admission through ACCUPLACER, our official special admission assessment tool for testing various math and English skills.

ACCUPLACER cannot assess social or science admission requirements to a program. Social and science requirements must be met through specific high-school courses or their approved alternatives.

Further details are available in our ACCUPLACER testing (pdf) information document. The ACCUPLACER cut scores for each program are listed on the relevant program web page.
