Admission Criteria for 2023-2024: Main Campus

  • At least one full year of high school completed:
    • Cumulative GPA of 3.0 or higher on high school transcript
  • Less than a full year of high school completed:
    • Cumulative GPA of 3.0 or higher on high school transcript (or B average on middle school grade card) and
    • Remediation free scores on assessment testing (ACT, SAT or Accuplacer Reading) as determined by state eligibility criteria: CCP Student Eligibility Assessments


If you have not yet completed a full year of high school and need assessment testing to meet admission criteria, you may schedule an Accuplacer Reading Test with the Firelands Testing Center. Accuplacer Reading will be remotely proctored and does not require you to come to campus. Please be sure to have a laptop or device that allows full audio and video via Zoom for your proctored session. There is no time limit on the Accuplacer Reading test, but on average students will complete the test within 25-30 minutes. Please call us at 419-372-1537 for instructions on scheduling.

Course placements are not required for admission to BGSU. However, some BGSU courses may require a placement assessment to determine the appropriate course level for each student. This generally applies to writing, math, or world languages. Discuss with your academic advisor if a course placement is needed.
