Academic Eligibility for Admission

Students successfully completing the high school core curriculum must have a minimum composite ACT score of 20 or higher to be considered for admission to Ozark Christian College. If the minimum of 20 is not met after 2 testing attempts, applicants will then be considered based on the sliding scale below.

 

How to Use This Scale

 
Follow the line reflecting your ACT composite score across the scale to determine the minimum GPA you must have. For example, a student with an ACT of 16 would need a GPA 2.75 or higher in order to be considered for admission.
IF your ACT composite score is… 
THEN your  
Minimum Cumulative GPA must be… 
19 
At least 2.00 
18 
At least 2.25 
17 
At least 2.50 
16 
At least 2.75 
15 
At least 3.00 

If your school does not grade on a 4.00 scale, you may convert your GPA to a 4.00 equivalent by multiplying your GPA by four and dividing that number by the scale your school uses. For example, if you have a 10.50 GPA on a 12.00 scale, your converted GPA equivalent is 3.50 [(10.50 x 4) ÷ 12 = 3.50].

Alternatives For Students Not Meeting the Academic Requirements:

Any education is a large investment of time and finances, so Ozark seeks to admit students who demonstrate the potential to successfully complete their first year of collegiate work. Our research has shown that students who are able to successfully pass their freshmen year and go on to be sophomores have the greatest likelihood of completing a degree. Though we have an academic standard that applicants are required to meet, we also recognize that some students have potential for success, though it may not be evident through test scores and grade point average. If you do not meet the requirement(s) listed above, we would encourage you to take one of the following actions: 
  1. Retake the ACT to obtain a higher score. Students are encouraged to take the ACT multiple times, as Admissions will record the highest composite score of your various attempts
  2. Attend a community college and take general studies courses (ex. - history, English composition, physical education, speech, etc.). Remedial courses will not qualify for consideration or transfer. After attending a college/community college full time, if the student achieves a transfer college GPA that corresponds to the ACT Composite score on the sliding scale above, the student would be considered for admission to Ozark as a Transfer student.
