High School Nongraduates

Applicants who are not high school graduates may still be considered for admission. Azusa Pacific accepts some students who have acquired equivalency certificates or diplomas through GED tests or the California High School Proficiency Examination. The Office of Undergraduate Admissions evaluates such candidates’ individual merits and high school achievement records. Greater emphasis may be given to either the SAT I or ACT results.

A person 25 years of age or older who is not a high school graduate may be admitted with adult status by special action. In both cases, the applicant’s test scores and experience are evaluated for evidence of ability to complete college work. All such applicants should follow the application procedure for new students.
