Only results of ACT or SAT tests taken prior to the projected application deadline or the date on which the University stops accepting applica- tions—whichever is earlier—will be consid- ered for admission purposes. Of those freshman students admitted for the 2005-2006 academic year, approximately 90% ranked in the top half of their graduating class; 50% ranked in the top quarter of their class. The average ACT score was nearly 25 and there were significant increases over previous years in the number of admitted students having scores between 24 and 35. The middle 50 percent of admitted students earned ACT composite scores of 22 to 26 and the average GPA was 3.45. NOTE: It may not be possible to offer admis- sion to all qualified applicants because of a highly competitive applicant pool and space limitations. 3. Personal Statement Illinois State believes that student motivation and academic preparation are not fully revealed by a student’s high school transcript(s) or standardized test scores. The ability to succeed at Illinois State may be indi- cated by factors which can only be explained in written personal statements. Illinois State’s admissions process requires the submission of a personal statement, which will be reviewed along with other documentation submitted. Your personal statement may be used to com- ment on your motivation for college-level work, to explain circumstances that may affect our admission decision and that are not readily apparent from academic records, and your desire to attend Illinois State University. This is your opportunity to address the Admissions staff directly—to let the commit- tee know more about you as an individual in a way that statistics cannot. General Equivalency Diploma in Lieu of High School Diploma Applicants who use general equivalency diploma (GED) test results in lieu of a high school diploma are required to submit GED test results reflecting the standard of 410 on each of the five tests and an average battery score of 450. Applicants must also submit ACT or SAT results as well as a personal statement. FINALIZING ADMISSION Applicants are required to submit final offi- cial high school transcripts by August 1 in order to verify high school graduation prior to enrollment at Illinois State. In addition, offi- cial ACT or SAT scores also must be received by August 1. If the scores were not sent to Illinois State University at the time the test Admission Policies A D M

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
