Brevard College is looking for students who want to make a difference in the world through the knowledge, training and experience they receive in their undergraduate career. In making admission decisions, we consider academic preparation, indicators of interest in learning, as well as experience in leadership in community.
Five factors are involved when we assess your preparation for a successful college career:
- Courses selected in high school
- Your grade record and pattern in high school
- Results of either the SAT-I or ACT
- Class rank
- Involvement in leadership on campus and in the community.
Your high school record should reflect at least:
- Four units of English
- Three units of mathematics
- Courses in social studies, laboratory sciences, foreign language and the arts.
If you are interested in majoring in the Performing/Fine Arts, you will have to meet additional requirements for acceptance into the specific major.
- If you have attended any other institution of higher learning (or taken courses online), you will be considered for admission as a transfer student provided you are eligible, both socially and academically to return to the college last attended.
In reviewing transfer applications, we consider:
- College grade point averages (individual and cumulative) and course selection
- High school grade point average and course selection
- SAT/ACT scores
Transfer Credit Evaluation
In general, all of your college credits earned with a “C-“ or higher from any regionally accredited college or university will transfer and be included on your Brevard College transcript. No more than 92 credit hours from other institutions may be applied toward graduation from Brevard. At least 32 hours of work must be taken at Brevard in order to earn the Bachelor of Arts degree.
Equivalent credit is awarded for courses similar in content to courses offered at Brevard College. The evaluation to determine which courses will be given equivalent credit is handled by the Registrar’s Office. Soon after your acceptance to Brevard, you will receive a Transcript Evaluation, which lists the credits that will be applied toward a degree at Brevard. The Academic Catalog may provide you with specific answers to your questions regarding courses offered at Brevard College.
All students who are neither citizens nor legal residents of the United States must submit the following information, along with the completed application and application fee:
- Official transcripts from your secondary and post-secondary study. These transcripts must bear the official registry of the institution or testing agency supplying them. All English translations must be certified. Photocopies of any kind must be certified as true copies of the original documents.
- English language proficiency as determined by the TOEFL (Test of English as a Foreign Language) for those students from countries where English is not the official language. A minimum of 550 paper-based, 230 computer-based or 87 internet-based is required for admission. Brevard College does not offer an English as a Second Language (ESL) program.
- Evidence of financial support is required. While a partial limited scholarship is offered to some qualified students, applicants must have demonstrated adequate resources to cover nearly all of their expenses. Students should submit the College’s International Student Financial Aid Form, along with official bank letters indicating the amount of support available.
Completed materials should be received in Admissions Office by May 1 for the fall semester, which begins in August, and by October 1 for the spring semester, which begins in January. Specific questions about the admission process for international students should be directed to the Admission Office or contact the Admission Office directly at firstname.lastname@example.org .
