Academic Requirements

Admission to Johnson C. Smith University is becoming increasingly competitive. We take a number of factors into consideration when we select our candidates for our freshman class. We are searching for scholars with the potential to be successful, and we look at each applicant individually.

Successful applicants have shown a solid academic foundation by studying the following in high school

  • Four English courses
  • Three math courses
  • Two social science courses
  • Two natural science courses (one must include a lab)
  • Two foreign language courses

We also take competitive test scores and grade point averages (GPA) into account when making admissions decisions.
