Division I GPA required to be eligible for competition on or after August 1, 2016 is 2.3 (corresponding test score requirements are listed on sliding scale B) • 16 Core Courses Required… • 4 Years English • 3 Years Math • 2 Years Science • 1 Year Additional • (English, Math, or Science) • 2 Years Social Science • 4 Years Additional Courses • (Any Area Above, Foreign Language, or Religion/Philosophy)
