High School Students
You should have your school send your official high school transcript directly to the Office of Admission.
If you have completed any college work, please request the school at which you completed this work send your college transcripts to the Office of Admission.
Applicants from approved high schools will be admitted to the freshman class upon certification that the applicant is a high school graduate and recommended for college work, and provided that the applicant has met all other requirements for admission.
Check out our guidelines on what makes a good transcript.
You should have a graduation date and at least 16–18 acceptable units of secondary school work. (A unit is defined as five 45-minute periods each week for 36 weeks.)
Ten of these units must be in academic subjects. The following distribution of units is recommended:
- English (3 units)
- Mathematics (2 units)
- Natural science (1 unit)
- Social studies or history (2 units)
- Foreign language (2 units)
Students who BJU is willing to accept but are deficient in entrance requirements must make up deficiencies by taking additional credits on the university level. These credits are added to the total of 120 required for degree conferral.
Since one semester of college work is usually construed to be the equivalent of a year’s high school course, a student deficient one-half unit of academic electives is required 121 credits for degree conferral; a student deficient one unit, 122 credits for degree conferral, etc. These additional credits must be taken in the areas of study in which the student is deficient.
|Deficiency of Academic Electives||Required for Graduation|
|0 units||120 credits|
|.5 unit||121 credits|
|1 unit||122 credits|
