Nontraditional admission requirements
Home school students
Home school students may be considered for admission using the same criteria as those applied to traditional freshman applicants. A detailed home school transcript indicating courses of study and grades earned must be provided at the time of application and after graduation, with date of graduation indicated. ACT or SAT scores are also required.
Students with a general equivalency diploma (GED) may be considered for admission. An average score of at least 550 is expected, but all students applying for admission are fully considered. GED students are subject to HEAR and MAPS requirements. Though GED students must submit official GED score reports and official high school transcripts, the high school GPA is not considered in the admission review process. ACT or SAT scores are also required.
Nontraditional high school students
Students attending nontraditional high school programs where letter grades are not awarded may be considered for admission. Official high school transcripts along with portfolio summaries or other assessment documents must be provided at the time of application and after graduation, with date of graduation indicated. For ungraded students, the state of Colorado has determined that a 3.3 GPA will be used for index calculation purposes. ACT or SAT scores are also required.
