High School Transcript
ACT or SAT Results
Each year BGSU admits an extraordinary group of students. High school coursework, GPA, test scores and class rank determine BGSU’s process of student selection.
To complete the Bowling Green State University admissions process you must submit:
- Application for Undergraduate Admission
- A $45 nonrefundable application fee ($75 for international applicants)
- Official high school transcript
- Official ACT or SAT test results
Credentials submitted to BGSU become the property of BGSU and will not be returned.
Freshmen are defined as those who have graduated from a secondary school. Candidates who earned college credit before high school graduation are considered freshmen with advanced standing and should have their college transcripts sent to the Office of Admissions.
High School Graduates
If you have already graduated from high school, send the required documents directly to the BGSU Office of Admissions. An official high school transcript is also required. If you graduated from high school more than three years ago, you do not need to submit ACT or SAT test scores.
High School Equivalency
If you earned high school equivalency through the General Educational Development (GED) testing program, please have an official copy of your GED results and high school transcript sent to the Office of Admissions.
Five-Year Admission Policy
If you have not taken coursework anywhere (high school or college) during the past five years, you are eligible for admission to the University. Students admitted under this five-year admission policy are required to take courses under the close supervision of a college academic advisor.
Students who wish to take classes at Bowling Green but do not plan to seek a BGSU degree can attend as “guest” students. Registration for “guest” students does not require application to BGSU and is arranged by the Office of Registration and Records.
International students should contact the Office of Admissions for information on requirements and application procedures.
Congratulations on your admission to Bowling Green State University! We look forward to welcoming you to campus.
