Regular admission as a first-year student normally requires graduation from an accredited secondary school with a minimum of 16 units of high school credit. These should include at least four units in English, three in mathematics, two in history and social studies, two in a single foreign language and one in the natural sciences. Most admitted students will have pursued a challenging curriculum of Advanced Placement or International Baccalaureate courses. Candidates for admission must furnish evidence of maturity and educational achievement, plus evidence of character and motivation for study in the College of Arts and Sciences. High school curriculum and classroom performance, combined with the student’s writing ability, extracurricular activities, and evidence of character and talent, are the most important criteria for admission.
Go for it. Start the process and let’s see if this is a fit.
