Admissions Requirements

Pitt Bradford bases its admissions decision on the whole applicant.  The most important factor that we have found is your high school grade point average.  That gives us three years of your work to consider, rather than a few hours on a test. SAT and ACT test scores are secondary considerations.  We like to see a high school rank, if available, and other information that you can provide to us like a personal statement or letters of recommendation.   The average GPA for our incoming class in the Fall of 2019 was 3.30, the average SAT was 1061, and the average ACT was 21.

To be eligible for admission, you must complete 15 high school units, including the requirements listed below. (A unit refers to one year of study in high school.) We encourage you to complete as many college preparatory courses as possible.
