The Massachusetts Board of Regents has drafted a policy of minimal admission standards for public four-year institutions. Most of our out-of-state public institutions and private colleges and universities, especially those of a competitive nature, have such expectations as well.
Students considering four year schools are advised to adhere to the standards listed below.
The standards shown are minimal. For those students interested in a health field, engineering program or four-year business programs, it would be wise to take additional math and/or science courses based on past records and potential.
The rule of thumb for any course selection should be: "If you are successful in any given course, continue the sequence as far as your schedule and potential will allow."
Those students who fail to meet these requirements can enroll in either a two-year transfer program at a community college or in a private two year college and transfer to a four year institution later if space is available and his/her academic success at this level is clearly indicated.
