Morningside’s selective admissions program is based on
the following criteria:
1. Rank in high school graduating class, college preparatory
coursework, and grade point average.
2. Scores on ACT or SAT admissions tests. Essay participation recommended
but not required.
3. Character and personal abilities.
Students who have earned a minimum composite ACT of 20 or SAT of
1410, and either ranked in the top half of their class or have
achieved a high school cumulative grade point average of 2.5 or
better, based on a 4.0 scale, meet the academic standards for admissions.
First-year students who have been out of high school more
than five years are not required to submit ACT or SAT test
scores but are required to take Mathematics and/or English
placement assessments. Students who have not completed high
school may be admitted on the basis of a GED score.
