Judson seeks students with academic ability, personal promise, strong motivation, seriousness of purpose, and high moral character.
Admission is based on a careful review of credentials.
The Academic Policies Committee has established the following minimum admissions standards: class rank at the 50th percentile, composite ACT of 21 or composite SAT of 990, and GPA of 2.50 (on a 4.00 scale). Applicants who do not meet the minimum admission standards will be evaluated by the Admissions Review Committee. A limited number of marginal candidates who demonstrate strong potential to succeed at the collegiate level are accepted.
Prospective students are best served if they have taken a sequence of university preparatory courses in high school. It is strongly recommended that students have the following course foundation: 4 years of English, 3 years of math, 2 years of social science, and 2 years of lab science, and 1 year flex credits art, music, foreign language, American sign language, or vocational credit. These requirements align with Illinois state standards.
