SPSU's minimum requirements for limited freshman admission include the following:

  • Graduation from:
    • A regionally accredited high school
    • Or from a high school accredited by the Georgia Accreditation Commission
    • Or from a high school accredited by an approved University System of Georgia agency
    • Or from a public school under the authority of the State Department of Education
  • Completion of the 16 required CPC units
  • Have an academic High School GPA of at least a 2.5
  • Minimum scores on the SAT or ACT as follows:

A freshman applicant may apply as early as the end of his or her junior year in high school. After the receipt of all required documents, (juniors should include their planned senior year subjects on their high school transcript), the Admissions Office will notify the applicant of his or her admission status.
