ACADEMIC CRITERIA: Freshman Admission
Favorable consideration for admission will be given to accredited secondary school graduates whose college aptitude test scores and high school grades give promise of success in college. Secondary school students planning to apply for admission to KSU should emphasize the following school courses: English, mathematics, history, and science. They must also meet the University general admission requirements.
The admissions index was established to quantify an assessment of a student’s high school activities and ACT assessment. The admissions index is a numerical score calculated by multiplying the ACT by 10, the grade-point average by 100, and by adding the two sums. The equation is as follows: ACT x 10 + GPA x 100 = index. SAT I verbal and math scores are converted to ACT composite scores for use in the admissions index according to a table of equivalencies developed by the Kentucky Council on Postsecondary Education (www.cpe.state.ky.us ).
Unconditional Admission for First-Time Freshmen Kentucky State University requires students to meet an admission index of 430 or greater and to complete the Pre-College Curriculum (PCC), Kentucky residents only, in order to be admitted unconditionally to the University.
Conditional Admission for First-Time Freshmen Students with an admission index of 320-429 may be granted conditional admission. Applicants with an admission index of 320 or greater with PCC deficiencies also may be conditionally admitted to the University. Students granted conditional admission may not take more than 15 credit hours per semester until conditional status is removed. If a student fails to successfully complete all mathematics and English deficiencies within the first 45 semester credit hours of course work, he or she will be suspended from the University. (See Academic Policies on Academic Standing).
Conditional status will be removed upon satisfying all of the following:
(a) Successful removal of deficiencies in mathematics and English (b) Submission of all required admission documents, including SAT or ACT scores.
Denied Admission—Appeal Process
Applicants who are denied admission to the University (for any reason) will receive written notice of such denial. Students wishing to challenge the admission decision may make a written appeal which must include two letters of recommendation/support for the appeal. One of the letters of recommendation should be from a high school teacher or guidance counselor. All appeals letters should be sent to the:
University Admissions and Recruitment Committee c/o Office of Admissions, Kentucky State University, 400 East Main Street, Academic Services Building, Room 312 Frankfort, KY 40601
The Pre-College Curriculum (PCC) is a core of high school courses required for all Kentucky resident students entering a public institution of higher learning in the Commonwealth of Kentucky as mandated by the Council on Postsecondary Education. Students who have not taken or completed PCC classes while in high school must fulfill these requirements during the first 30 credit hours at Kentucky State University. Failure to complete these requirements will result in the student being suspended from the University. The PCC classes are:

|Mathematics||Fundamentals of Mathematics or Intermediate Level Algebra||MAT 095 or MAT 097|
Courses which remedy the PCC deficiencies are subject to change.

The following students ARE NOT required to have the PCC requirements:
ADVANCED STANDING AND CREDIT
Prospective students are advised to request information on advanced program standing from the Testing Office at Kentucky State University information.
