Any student wishing to enroll in a Kansas Regents College following high school graduation must meet Qualified Admissions Requirements. Qualified Admissions are a set of criteria that guarantees admission to a state university for certain Kansas residents. These criteria are set by the Kansas Board of Regents, the governing body for the six state universities, Kansas University, Kansas State University, Fort Hays State University, Emporia State University and Pittsburg State University. The purpose of QA is to enhance success at the university level by ensuring high school students are prepared for the rigors of a university education. The criteria will be changing for the class of 2015.
The link below is to the current Qualified Admissions Requirements, the new Qualified Admissions Requirements starting in 2015 and the Kansas Scholars curriculum. The current requirements are based on the students meeting one of three criteria, a 21 on the ACT, being in the top third of your class or taking the pre-college curriculum. The NEW change removes the pre-college curriculum as an option and instead requires students take the pre-college curriculum with a minimum 2.0 GPA and meet one of the other two, test score or class rank. The change also allows the Kansas Scholars Curriculum to be substituted for the pre-college curriculum. Click on this link for more information.
