A. No, you must meet both the minimum GPA and the minimum SAT score to be eligible for admission. Exceptions to the minimum requirements are handled on a case-by-case basis and in rare instances.
Q. What if I graduate in 2010, but do not apply to Elizabeth City State University until 2012, what requirements must I fulfill?A.The minimum scores that were in effect the year you graduated from high school will be applied to determine eligibility.
Q. What if I decide to go to the community college first and transfer later, does my high school GPA count toward admissions?
A. It depends. If you complete the A.A. or A.S. degree, then the minimum scores do not apply, but you will be evaluated on your performance at the community college. If you do not complete the A.A. or the A.S. degree, then your high school GPA and SAT scores will be used to determine eligibility.
