Early Admission

The Early Admission Program permits an academically-outstanding high school student to forego their senior year and receive a high school diploma by completing 24 semester hours at FranU.

Minimum Requirements:

  • Letter of recommendation from the high school principal
  • A six-semester high school transcript with a minimum cumulative grade point average of 3.0 (on a 4.0 scale) in all high school courses
  • A minimum 25 ACT composite score or 1210 SAT score
  • Proof of immunization prior to registration

After 24 semester hours are earned:

  • FranU submits a recommendation to the high school principal for issuance of a high school diploma
  • Diploma will be awarded by the high school
  • Student is responsible for providing an official high school transcript to FranU’s Office of Admissions as verification of graduation

Students admitted to this program are subject to the same fees, rules and regulations as other FranU students. A student enrolled simultaneously at the University and a high school is subject to any rules and regulations imposed by that high school.
