Admissions Requirements

At UAlbany, we know that you're more than a grade point average and a test score. That's why we don't impose minimum score requirements for admission. We look at the whole person, recognizing your special talents and interests outside the classroom as well as in it.

Among the factors we consider when evaluating applications for freshman admission:

  • The rigor of your high school academic program
  • Your academic record
  • Your standardized test scores
  • Your potential for leadership and your extracurricular interests
  • Your potential for success at the University at Albany

We do expect that you will have completed a traditional college-preparatory curriculum in high school, and we encourage you to take some enriched and honors-level courses when appropriate.
