Other Admissions Information

Colleges are committed to open admissions with the minimum requirement of a high school diploma, a standard adult high school diploma, or an equivalent high school diploma certificate, such as General Educational Development (GED) certificate.

  1. A person who does not have a high school diploma or its equivalent and intends to enroll in an eligible career pathways program may be admitted if that person demonstrates passing scores on the approved Ability to Benefit (ATB) test.
  2. A person who does not have a high school diploma or its equivalent may be admitted at the discretion of the college according to locally determined admissions requirements.

Admission to a college does not guarantee that a student is allowed to enroll in college-level courses as provided for in System Procedure 3.3.1 Assessment for Course Placement. Admitted students may enroll in courses that do not have a reading, writing, or mathematics placement score or prerequisite requirement.
