Requirement for Underage Applicants (16 and 17 year-olds)


To qualify for admission, underage applicants who have not yet graduated from high school or completed secondary education must submit transcripts for review.

Students must have completed at least one semester in 10th grade at the time of application, and submit all available transcripts from 10th grade first semester onward.

Transcripts must show the underage applicant has above-average / B average results overall, or rank in the top 20% of his/her class. Students who do not meet the minimum grade requirement can be reconsidered for admission once they are 18 years of age or graduate from high school, whichever comes first.
