EARLY AND CONCURRENT ADMISSIONS

Early admission permits high school students who have not completed all the requirements for a high school diploma to apply for admission to Southern University as regular students. Students are considered on the basis of academic achievement, general maturity and readiness to begin college work. However, some minimum requirements must be met:

  • Completion of eleventh grade in high school

  • A GPA of at least 3.5 (out of 4.0) on all academic work pursued during the last three years or six semesters of high school

  • ACT score of 24 or better

  • Recommendations from the high school principal or counselor

  • A letter from the applicant stating the reason for seeking early admission. Students may also be admitted between their junior and senior years in high school for a special summer program and earn credit on a deferred basis. These students must also meet the above requirements.
  •  

    Concurrent enrollment allows qualified high school seniors to register in one or two college courses simultaneously with their high school courses. Students are allowed to earn a maximum of seven credit hours at Southern University through concurrent enrollment. Requirements for participation are:

  • A grade point average of 3.0 or better

  • ACT score of 24 or better

  • Recommendations from the high school principal or counselor
  •
