IUPUI Admissions Guidelines

University College

2006 terms

 

 

General Information 

 

Students may be considered for all terms

 

Freshman Guidelines

 

Reviewing counselor must examine trend in grades earned, difficulty of curriculum including senior year, and grades earned. Trend in grades is very important.

Strong junior and senior year performance in a strong college prep curriculum always off sets 9th and 10th grade performance. High SAT or ACT scores do not compensate for poor academic performance.

 

GQE requirements

 

1.               Public and parochial school students must pass GQE to earn diploma.

2.               All non accredited high schools (usually Christian schools) and all home school students are not allowed to take GQE and are exempt from this requirement.

3.               ALL GRADUATES  beginning with December 1999  who attended INDIANA public and parochial schools must have a date of graduation on their transcript and have passed GQE or received a waiver.   If student has not graduated or did not receive a waiver,  student must be deferred to Ivy Tech. This includes returning adults.

4.               All 2006 prospective graduates (including Dec 05 grads) of Indiana public and parochial schools must have either passing GQE scores on their transcript or the counselor must have checked off on the back of the application that they passed the GQE.

5.               Applicants from public and parochial high schools who have not yet passed the test, must be delayed for either the final GQE results or the granting of the waiver for graduation.  They must be working on Core 40 and must not have more than 2 D/F grades in college prep courses below C at the time of first review. Those with more than 2 low grades should be denied and deferred to community college.

6.  All applicants who have not passed GQE at time of application should have application reviewed by Mike, Mona, or Terry. They should not be delayed. Processor will place admissions note on base stating “has not passed “GQE”

Counselors will review individually records for grade trends.  C grades in college prep courses (with at least 4 of these courses each term) during 11th and 12 grade will compensate for D and F grades during 9th and 10th grade.  In other words we will use professional judgment to make exceptions. ** A returning adult with a weak performance in high school or less than one year of college prep mathematics may be deferred to CCI.   Maturity and work experiences after high school can counterbalance a weak high school record. Assistant Directors will use professional judgment to determine the appropriate action to promote the individual’s success.( ## on old SATI this is verbal and math total. On new SATI this is just the sum of critical reasoning and math score.)
