“Today the School, Tomorrow the World. Global Education for a Global Society” WHAT DO COLLEGES LOOK FOR WHEN SELECTING STUDENTS? Colleges look at the “total student” when making admissions decisions, but they also have some minimum criteria they expect candidates to possess. Listed below are some areas that are considered. Check the college catalogue to find out what the specific colleges you are looking at expect of you. High school grades/courses/class rank Schools look not only at your grade point average (GPA) but also at the type of courses you have taken. Many schools have minimum requirements for entrance, such as math through Algebra 2 and foreign language. Some schools only count major subjects when calculating a GPA. Some schools also look at your class rank (how your GPA places you in comparison to other students in our class). Are you in the top 5%, 10%, 25%? Standardized test scores Many schools require that you take one of the college admissions tests and use your scores as a predictor of how you will do in their college setting. Check the college handbooks, catalogues or with your counselor to find out what the average SAT’s or ACT’s are for the schools in which you are interested. There is a school for everyone, no matter what the test score, but you should not apply to some schools if your scores are way “out of the ball park.” Prince George’s Community College will accept any high school graduate and does not rely on these admissions tests. If you do not score well, perhaps you want to start at a local two-year community college and then transfer to a four-year college (which will then not look at test scores but only at your grades in college level courses) The Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT) What is the SAT and how is it structured? The SAT is a standardized, multiple-choice test used by most U.S. colleges and universities for admissions and placement decisions. SAT scores can also be used to determine scholarship eligibility. The test is administered by the Educational Testing Service (ETS) and given nationally seven times a year. 1
