Policy and Procedure for Admission


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.

Requests for admission information should be made to the Director of Admissions, Judson University, 1151 N. State St., Elgin, IL 60123, (847) 628-2510.
