College Requirements

Freshman Entrance Requirements

Unconditional Admission - High School graduates may be admitted as Freshmen on the basis of acceptable high school records, minimum 2.0 GPA; "C" average, and scores achieved on the ACT Program, minimum composite of 20 on the ACT, or the SAT, minimum composite of 950. Applicants who are 25 years of age or older are not required to submit ACT/SAT scores for admission to the university. All applicants who are graduates of accredited high schools must submit an official transcript showing graduation and a minimum of fifteen Carnegie units, with three or more units in English. Of the units presented, eleven must be in academic courses. Applicants who are graduates of non-accredited secondary schools may be admitted provided they meet the same requirements as students from accredited schools. Pending judgment of the Admissions Committee, these students are expected to complete satisfactory academic work.

Conditional Admission - An applicant who does not qualify for unconditional admission may enroll at Troy University as a conditionally admitted student if he/she meets the following criteria: If the high school grade point average is less than 2.0, the applicant must have a minimum composite score of 20 on the ACT or 950 or the SAT. If the applicant's composite score on the ACT is less than 20, but not less than 17 or 950 on the SAT, but not less than 830, they must have a cumulative high school grade point average of 2.5 or better. The conditionally admitted student will be permitted to carry a maximum course load of 13 semester hours until he/she has attempted 24 semester hours of TROY work. The student will follow prescribed courses of study designed to strengthen their basic skills. Specific courses must be taken where weaknesses have been demonstrated. Conditionally admitted students who compile an overall C (2.0) average upon completion of at least 12-24 semester hours of TROY work will be granted unconditional admission status. Credits earned by a conditionally admitted student are recorded on the permanent record of the student and will apply, if applicable, toward a regular undergraduate degree program. If the student fails to earn an overall C average (2.0) in all work attempted during the conditional period, they will be dropped from the program and will be unable to return to TROY until the overall grade point average is 2.0 on all college work attempted.


Qualified applicants are encouraged to apply to the Troy University campus or site of their choosing. Applicants should be aware that TROY operates on a number of campuses and sites so it is important that you are specific when indicating your choice of a location. A non-refundable $30 application fee must accompany submission of the application for processing purposes. Students applying to online programs and sites outside of Alabama must meet application deadlines listed on the academic calendar.
