Admission Requirements

To be considered for admission, applicants should have an earned GPA of 2.0 in a college preparatory curriculum or better (2.7 minimum GPA for consideration for nursing, vet tech, vet science, pre-vet, and equine studies/basic sciences applicants). Complete applications must include:

  • A completed application for admission.
  • An official copy of the secondary school transcript, sent directly to Becker College. Students who have received a General Equivalency Diploma (GED) must forward an official score report. Freshman admission is contingent upon the applicant’s final graduation from high school or successful completion of the GED. Applicants will need to have a final transcript submitted to Becker College following the release of final grades.
  • SAT I or ACT scores. The Becker College CEEB code is 3079.
  • Optional letter of recommendation, which attests to the applicant’s individual qualifications. Becker College recognizes that all students are individuals and will consider each applicant’s personal strengths and achievements. Any other supporting materials that are submitted will be considered.
  • Optional essay on any topic, approximately 250-500 words in length.
  • Applicants whose GPA falls below a 2.0 or whose curriculum was not entirely college preparatory will be reviewed on an individual basis.
  • Interactive Media portfolios are optional and not required for any of the concentrations, although submitting one is always recommended because the program is very competitive. Submitted portfolios should be online, (a website with included samples of art work, programming, or other examples of work you have done in and around video game design is the preferred portfolio format). There are no formal requirements about what can or cannot be included. You should be creative! The easiest way to submit the link to your portfolio website is by writing a brief essay with the link included, and then submit that essay in the appropriate essay or personal statement section of the application.

Criminal Background Policy: CORI Policy and SORI Policy

The College’s initial application for admission includes questions relating to past disciplinary violations at educational institutions as well as felony/misdemeanor infractions.  Students who answer “yes” to any of these questions may be required to submit additional information as part of the application process.  Some convictions and disciplinary violations may impact admission, licensure, clinical placements, and/or program requirements.  The applicant is responsible for understanding the impact this could have on his/her future goals.

Post-Decision Review

If selected for admission to the College, all students are expected to maintain an equal or superior level of academic achievement and behavior throughout the remainder of the year.  The College reserves the right to rescind offers of acceptance if a) the final academic record is significantly lower than the record at the time admission was granted; b) information is misrepresented on the application; or c) misconduct.

Deferral Policy

Deferral requests by deposited students after May 1 will not be granted.  Students wishing to attend for a future semester will forfeit their deposit and must reapply for admission.  Submitted deposits are only valid for the original semester for which they were accepted, not future semesters.
