Applicants to Eastern Nazarene College’s undergraduate program should have the following minimum college preparatory units: 4 years of English, 2 years of History, 2 years of Social Science, 3 years of Language, 3 years of Mathematics, and 2-3 years of Sciences. Students must arrange to have an official signed and sealed copy of their secondary school transcripts sent directly to the Office of Admission at Eastern Nazarene College. A final transcript with a graduation date must also be sent to the college after graduation. If the high school requires a request form, please download a transcript request form. If students have a GED, an official score report and partial secondary school transcript are required. Homeschooled students and those seeking additional assistance regarding secondary school transcripts, may contact their individual Enrollment Counselor.
- Official Standardized Test Scores
Students must submit to the Office of Admission an official report of their standardized test scores for either the Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT) or the Assessment Test of the American College Testing Program (ACT). Eastern Nazarene College’s code for the SAT is 3365 and 1818 for the ACT. Scores submitted on official secondary school transcripts are considered official. An Accuplacer test may also be required.
Eastern Nazarene College offers admission to qualified applicants who demonstrate academic achievement, good character, extracurricular involvement, and community engagement. First-time freshman applicants who present a minimum of 540 for Evidence- Based Reading and Writing and 510 for Math on the SAT or a minimum composite score of 20 on the ACT are eligible for admission to the college. The Committee on Admission will review application portfolios that do not meet the minimum admission requirements, and these applicants may be considered for admission through the Bridge Program at Eastern Nazarene College. Prior to considering an application for the Bridge Program, the Committee on Admissionsmay require the applicant to take placement testing and provide additional materials demonstrating readiness for college.
Applicants should also submit all college transcripts, if dual-enrolled. For students who take the Advanced Placement (AP) Test, a score of three will result in a waiver and a score of four or five will result in a waiver with credit for the equivalent course in most cases. Students who take CLEP exams and receive the minimum score listed will receive college credit and waiver of the listed requirement. Students must have official scores for AP and CLEP exams sent to the Office of the Registrar at Eastern Nazarene College for evaluation. For more information, please refer to the Academic Information and Policies section of the college catalog.
Applicants are assigned a personal Enrollment Counselor to assist them throughout the application process. The Director and the Committee on Admission evaluate all admission criteria when making admission decisions. Notification of admission is made year-round, on a case-by-case basis, and as soon as possible after all of the required materials have been received by the college. Please do not hesitate to contact your individual Enrollment Counselor!
