New students are high school graduates or students with no prior college classes or students who have attempted fewer than 16 college level semester credits. All transcripts for advanced placement courses and official test scores must be sent to Metropolitan State University from CollegeBoard prior to enrolling.
Consideration for freshman admission will be based on one 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
- A cumulative grade point average (GPA) of 3.0. 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.
