Required High School Curriculum
Completion of the USG’s Required High School Curriculum (RHSC) requirements and graduation from a high school accredited by a regional accrediting association (such as the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools) or the Georgia Accrediting Commission or from a public school regulated by a school system and state department of education are required.
Students who graduate from high school in 2012 or later must present credits for 17 specified units. Please visit the University System of Georgia’s site https://www.usg.edu/assets/student_affairs/documents/Staying_on_Course.pdf for more information on Required High School Curriculum.
Calculation of the High School GPA (HS GPA) for the purpose of the Freshmen Index (FI) is computed by an “admissions HS GPA” using the “HOPE” method without “weighting.” This method includes all attempts on academic courses with no weighting for AP or IB courses. Students with an “admissions HS GPA” of less than a 2.0 will not be admitted.
Students must satisfy the minimum SAT score of 380 on Evidence Based Reading and Writing and 360 on the Math section or ACT 12 English or 12 Reading, and ACT Math of 14.
The Freshmen Index considers students’ performance in high school as well as their performance on the SAT or ACT. To be admitted, students must have a Freshmen Index of at least 1830, calculated as:
FI = 500 x (HSGPA) + 1.06 x (SAT Evidence-Based Reading and Writing section score + SAT Math section score) - 74
FI = 500 X (HS GPA) + (ACT Composite x 42) + 88
