- Submit an application – no application fee when submitting online
- Send us your official high school transcript (or GED certificate).
- Complete college preparatory high school core curriculum:
- English (4 units), Math (3 units of Algebra I or above), Lab Science (3 units), Social Studies (2 units). Foreign Language (2 units) is also recommended.
- Achieve a minimum 2.8 high school GPA on a 4.0 scale.

If you do not meet the above criteria, we still encourage you to apply for admission. In some cases students who do not meet the admissions requirements outlined above may be granted conditional acceptance with the opportunity to be fully accepted after the completion of one successful semester.
