Chance me on getting into ASU

Anonymous12391Anonymous12391 0 replies1 threads New Member
I would really like to get into ASU but I am not sure if my grades are good enough. I saw that they want you to have at least a 3.0 for your gpa and a 22 score on your ACT. So, what do you think my odds of getting into ASU with about a 2.9 cumulative gpa and a 20 ACT score would be.

    To be admitted to ASU, you will need one of the following:

    1) top 25% in high school graduating class
    2) 3.00 GPA in competency courses (4.00 = "A")
    3) ACT: 22 (24 nonresidents)
    4) SAT: 1120 (1180 nonresidents)

    To be admitted to ASU, you will need the following:

    4 years math
    4 years English (non-ESL/ELL courses)
    3 years lab sciences (1 year each from biology, chemistry, earth science, integrated sciences or physics)
    2 years social sciences (including 1 year American history)
    2 years same second language
    1 year fine arts or 1 year career and technical education

    Competency requirements may be met with high school work, college work or test scores. These requirements must be met regardless of your major or the number of transferable hours you have earned. Students must earn a minimum 2.00 GPA in each competency area.

    Admission may be granted with one deficiency in no more than two competency areas. Deficiencies in both math and laboratory science are not acceptable.


    Since you do not meet the ACT or GPA requirements, are you the top 25% of your HS class or have you taken the SAT? Do you meet the course requirements also? If not, then your chances are zero if do not meet the admission requirements.

    @UTexas2024 - You should be able to get into ASUs Fulton CS program. Keep up the AP classes. I forget the cap, but ASU will give you credit for 4 & 5s on the exams. In some classes, even a 3 will get you some credit. This will allow you to finish quicker or graduate in 4 years with a Masters (3+1 program)

    Here is the AP credit info https://catalog.asu.edu/credit_exam You can earn up to 60 credits (2 years of classes).
