Undergraduate Admissions

At Capitol Technology University, we consider you a first-time freshman applicant if you have never enrolled in a college or university after receiving a high school diploma. If you received college credit while attending high school, you're still considered a freshman.

Find your admissions counselor, or watch the Admissions Presentation Video.

High School Requirements

For engineering programs, we look for:

  • at least a 2.8 grade point average;
  • an SAT score of at least 900, with at least a 500 in math or an ACT score of 19 (now optional to submit scores);
  • a fourth year of math (to prepare for college calculus); and
  • a third year of science.

For non-engineering programs, Capitol looks for students who have:

  • at least a 2.2 grade point average;
  • an SAT score of at least 800 or an ACT score of 17 (now optional to submit scores);
  • three years of math, including plane geometry and algebra II;
  • two years of science; and
  • two years of social science.

Engineering applicants who do not meet the above criteria, but meet the general admissions criteria, may be accepted into a freshman engineering technology program. After successful completion, students may transfer into the engineering program as sophomores with academic dean approval.

Foreign languages are not required.
