- Candidates who meet the requirement for unrestricted admission on a six or seven semester transcript, may enroll in university courses prior to graduation when the combined enrollments (high school and college) during any one semester do not exceed normal academic load. To be considered for this program, a student must obtain approval from the Office of Admissions and submit an application for admission to the university.
All students must present evidence that they meet the criteria stated.
- Students may meet the criteria for admission through a process submitted by the high school that is based upon performance criteria which justify waiver of requirement of the standardized test score OR the high school grade point average. These criteria are expected to be comprehensive and demonstrate exemplary performance. Arkansas State University reserves the right to determine whether the criteria are equivalent to standardized test scores or high school GPA. (Acceptable criteria might include: scores at the 80th percentile on a recent standardized achievement test, grades in AP or Honors classes, performance in the Arts before a state or regional audience.)
