New students are high school graduates/students with no prior college classes, or students who have attempted fewer than 16 semester college level credits.

Consideration for freshman admission will be based on some or all of the following criteria:

  • High school class rank in the upper 50th percentile
  • ACT, PSAT, or SAT Composite score at or above national median
  • A GED transcript with test scores

Applications from students who have a cumulative GPA of 2.0 or less from all previous institutions will require additional time to process. All transcripts will need to be received at least one month prior to the application deadline

If you wish to gain credit for advanced placement courses, official test scores must be sent to Metropolitan State from CollegeBoard.

Your admission will be deferred to the next semester if all transcripts are not received one month prior to the application deadline:

Application Deadlines:

  • Fall semester: June 30
  • Spring semester: November 15
  • Summer session: March 30

Note: There is no formal admissions deadline. Priority admission is given to students who apply prior to the application deadlines noted above.
