Former High School Graduates

First-time freshmen have graduated from high school or taken the GED or HiSET and have not attended a regionally accredited college or university after graduating from high school. Southern Utah University utilizes an admission index to admit first-time freshmen who have graduated less than five years before the application semester or are under 24 years old. The index is a number derived from the combination of high school cumulative unweighted GPA and the composite of either the ACT or SAT. First time freshman may identify their admission eligibility by reviewing the admission index table. Students with an admission index of 90 or higher are automatically admitted to the University. Students with an index less than 90 may be admitted after a secondary review. Applications must be complete and a request for review must be received at least three weeks before the first day of the semester.

Applicants who have graduated five or more years before the application semester or are 24 or more years old are admitted based on the cumulative unweighted high school GPA of 2.0 or the equivalent GED or HiSET scores.
