Admission Requirements

Doral College maintains the following admissions standards:

Degree seeking students

The following will be required for admission:

  1. Attend a high school with which the College holds an affiliation agreement;
  2. Hold an unweighted GPA* of 3.0 or above;
  3. Be recommended for the program by his or her high school principal/counselor; and
  4. Provide evidence of college readiness in all areas, as noted in the “College Readiness Tests and Scores” section below.

*Incoming 9th graders who do not yet have a GPA on file may be considered for admission if they have completed at least two high school level courses in middle school with a “B” average. Courses taken must include, at a minimum, Algebra I. These students must still meet all other requirements as specified.

Non-degree seeking students

The same requirements apply to both degree seeking and non-degree seeking students with one exception. Applicants who can provide evidence of college readiness in reading and writing, but not mathematics, will be accepted, but will not be permitted to enroll in mathematics or sciences courses.

Should an applicant apply as degree seeking and meet all requirements except college readiness in mathematics, he/she will be accepted as a non-degree student and will remain in that status until evidence of college readiness in mathematics is provided.

College Readiness Tests and Scores

The following chart indicates all eligible tests which may be used to provide evidence of college readiness and the scores required for each:

TEST READING/VERBAL ENGLISH/WRITING MATH
PSAT—prior to 2015 44+ 44+ 44+
PSAT—2015 and thereon 360+ Included in Reading score 470+
SAT—prior to March 2016 440+ 440+ 440+
SAT—March 2016 and thereon 490+ Included in Reading score 480+
ACT 19+ 17+ 19+
PERT 106+ 103+ 114+
ACCUPLACER** 83+ 83+ 72+

Should a student have taken more than one of the eligible tests listed, the College will consider all scores when making the student’s admissions decision. For example, if a student submits qualifying scores from the ACT for Reading and Writing and a qualifying score from the PERT for Mathematics, the student would be admitted to the College, assuming all other requirements have been met.
