What if I don’t meet these requirements?

Students who do not meet admission criteria may be accepted conditionally upon recommendation of the Admissions Review Committee. No applicant is refused admission to the university on the basis of race, color, religion, national origin, age, sex or disability.

Every applicant to BSU is reviewed on an individual basis. Admission is granted to applicants who will, in the judgment of the Admissions Review Committee, make positive contributions to the community life of the university and be able to progress satisfactorily toward the completion of all degree requirements. The committee evaluates secondary school achievement, recommendations from counselors, test scores and personal achievement.

In evaluating applications, the Admissions Review Committee also considers special circumstances which may have affected the applicant’s prior academic achievement.
