Criteria for Admission

  • SAT I or ACT standardized test results are required by Southwestern to be considered for admission, without prescribed minimum levels.
  • RECOMMENDATIONS from employers, high school teachers or parents are optional, although recommended. 
  • EXTRACURRICULAR ACTIVITIES are reviewed to assess what a candidate has accomplished outside of the classroom, noting leadership positions held, breadth of experience and sustained interest in individual activities.
  • The PERSONAL INTERVIEW is an option which allows a candidate to learn more about Southwestern and to discuss elements of his or her application file with a member of the admission staff.
