Admissions Guidelines

The University of Louisville seeks to admit students who are college-ready. The middle 50% of our first-year students scored between 22 and 28 on their ACTs. 25% scored 29-36 and the final 25% scored below 22. Students with lower test scores will be considered if they demonstrate strong high school grades in a rigorous high school curriculum. Demonstration of involvement outside the classroom, submission of letters of recommendation or a personal statement can also be used to demonstrate a student’s ability to succeed at the University of Louisville.

Beginning in August 2020, applicants for Spring 2021, Summer 2021 and Fall 2021 may choose on the application to apply without test scores.  This decision only applies at this time for these semesters.  Students choosing this option will be prompted to submit other additional materials as a part of the application process.  More details will be available in early July.   Applicants to the Speed School of Engineering, College of Business and School of Nursing will still be required to submit test scores.
