Notes

  • College Level Examination Program (CLEP) may not be used to satisfy any of the minimum requirements.
  • No grade lower than “C” will be accepted.

To use the AIS table locate the intersection of the SAT (Math + Critical Reading) score or ACT composite score with the GPA.

  • For Phase I, use unweighted high school GPA
  • For Phase II, use Cumulative Overall Undergraduate GPA

The following formula is used to convert a percentage grade to a GPA:

GPA = ((% Grade) / 20) - 1


You should talk to the pre-health professions advisor and your academic advisor to be sure you meet all requirements of the early acceptance program and all Ohio Wesleyan graduation requirements.
