Freshman Admissions Process for 2013-2014

University High School Admissions Criteria

January 8, 2014

In order to comply with the December 16,, 2013 Order from the US District Court, University High School is making the following adjustments to the UHS freshman admissions criteria.   (See Court Order.)

University High School is committed to an admissions process that is applied in a fair, equitable, and race-neutral manner.

 1.      Students who meet both the required minimum admissions criteria:

·        a test score at the 77th percentile or higher on the entrance test

·        a minimum GPA of a 3.00 or higher

AND

·        whose admission points were 50 points or higher

will be offered admission to UHS. 

 

Based on the number of seats available, UHS may have to offer admissions to students based on the geographic priorities as outlined in the current UHS Admission Policy.

(See UHS Admission Policy HERE.)

 2.      Students who meet both the required minimum admissions criteria:

·        a test score at the 77th percentile or higher on the entrance test

·        a minimum GPA of a 3.00 or higher 

AND

·        who received between 43 and 49 admission points

will be offered the opportunity to increase their admissions points by answering  3-5 short-answer essay questions.  This is an additional component to the current UHS admissions policy.

 3.      Students who do not meet one or other of the required admissions criteria

·        a test score at the 77th percentile or higher on the entrance test
