Undergraduate Degree Programs

Degree Programs and Admission Requirements

The following table lists all departments that offer Bachelor’s degree programs, according to faculty.
Next to the program, you may find the Psychometric Entrance Test scores required for admission of applicants accepted on the basis of a psychometric score alone.
Next to the Psychometric Entrance Test score you will find the required score on the new SAT (since March 2016). Applicants tested earlier will find a conversion table on the following link. In programs that consider the general score only, the SAT score will be listed as a total score. Many programs take the higher average from the general (50% Math and 50% ERW) or quantitative (67% Math and 33% ERW) scores. Some programs will consider only the general or only the quantitative scores. Please note the top of the tables for information on the score considered. 

Candidates applying with an ACT, may find a conversion table on the following link.
