Admission Decision Criteria
Lycoming College welcomes applications from prospective students regardless of age, sex, race, religion, financial resources, national or ethnic background.
Admission to Lycoming College is moderately competitive. Successful admission candidates generally place in the top two-fifths of their high school graduating class, and have better than average SAT1 or ACT scores. A test- optional program is available for students in the top half of their class.
While we must insure that students are able to meet the academic expectations of the faculty, we do pride ourselves in building a mosaic of interesting students with differing backgrounds and talents. Applicants are evaluated on the basis of their academic preparation, talents, and interests, as well as the College’s capacity to help them achieve their educational objectives and career goals.
Successful candidates typically complete a college preparatory program in high school which includes four years of English, three years of math, two years of modern language, two years of natural or physical science, three years of social science, and two years of academic electives.
From time to time supplemental materials, as well as a personal interview, may be required prior to the determination of admissibility.
