Guaranteed Early Admission

Download the ApplicationGuaranteed Early Admission (GEA) is a competitive process. Twenty spaces are reserved each academic year for first-year, full-time college freshmen from the University of Louisville, who enter the University of Louisville in the Fall semester. First year college freshmen are eligible to apply for the GEA program during their first year of enrollment at UofL. Students must be enrolled full time during these two semesters. Deadline is April 1st each year. GEA applicants must meet the following criteria:

  • Successful completion of NURS 101 with a passing grade.
  • Successful completion of the first year of full-time coursework with a minimum 3.0.
  • Completion of two required science courses (Chem 105 and BIO 102 or their equivalents) with a minimum grade of B.

GEA is not open to transfer students. Admission to Upper Division is guaranteed for the specific academic year indicated in the application. Students selected for early admission will be required to maintain a 3.0 GPA in Lower Division and will agree to begin Upper Division courses in the specified academic year. If the awarded GEA does not enroll in the Upper Division during the specified year, he/she will forfeit the GEA status and must reapply with the general applicant pool to compete for a space in Upper Division.
