Freshman Admission Process


  • Complete an application for admission.
  • Submit an official copy of final high school transcript. If the applicant is still completing high school, an official high school transcript for the classes completed so far should be submitted in addition to the final high school transcript when it is available.
  • ACT and SAT Scores Information- ACT and SAT scores are not required, but you are encouraged to submit the scores for one or both tests. The ACT and/or SAT scores are used to determine scholarship awards and for placement in math and English classes. If you do not submit ACT and/or SAT scores, you may be required to take a math and/or English Placement Test. Placement tests are offered at Potomac State Orientation (PSO) events.

    ACT and/or SAT scores are accepted in two of the following formats. If the score(s) appear on your official high school transcript, this format will be accepted. If you receive a mailed notice of your score(s) from the ACT and/or SAT college test companies, a copy of this format will be accepted. The online notification(s) will not be accepted.
