Undergraduate Admissions

Applying as a High School Student

Spalding is a place where you can learn, grow and succeed in a supportive campus community. We’re invested in your success, starting from the day you apply.

Criteria for automatic admission to the university requires a cumulative grade point average of 2.0 or higher. Students with a cumulative grade point average between 2.0 to 2.49 are automatically admitted into the Eagles Scholars Program.

SAT and ACT scores are not required for automatic admission. If you take either the SAT or ACT, we encourage you to submit your scores since they can be helpful in academic planning.

Admission to the university is distinct from admission to a degree program that may have different admission requirements.

Our undergraduate admission committee considers your total student profile. If you do not meet our automatic admission requirements, you may still be eligible for the Eagles Scholar Pathway.
