Students who aspire to attend a baccalaureate institution in Washington must apply for admission. Factors influencing admission include high school grade point averages, test scores, and extra-curricular activities. Read the full admission standards policy.
Required high school courses are known as the College Academic Distribution Requirements (CADRs). Washington Administrative Code (WAC 392-415-070) requires each school district to determine which of its high school courses meet CADR requirements and ensure students’ standardized high school transcripts designate such courses as meeting the requirements.
Completing CADR courses does not guarantee admission to one of the state’s six baccalaureate institutions. Institutions consider a number of criteria when making admission decisions.
Minimum college admission standards for public baccalaureate institutions include:
- 2.0 GPA
- Taking the SAT or ACT and having the scores sent directly to the college or university, unless the school has adopted a test-optional policy.
- Completing courses that meet the College Academic Distribution Requirements (CADRs).
Note: Each school district is responsible for determining which of their courses meet state CADRs.
