Fall/Spring/Summer Part-time Early Admissions Program


General Information


McNeese State University Fall/Spring/Summer part-time early admissions program is open to qualified students who have completed their high school junior year.


The purpose of the program is to attempt to more adequately meet the educational needs of academically capable students through enrichment as well as controlled acceleration. A candidate for this program who attends a state approved high school must have a cumulative grade point average of 3.0 or better on all work taken in high school or a minimum ACT composite score of 23/SAT 1060 . A candidate for this program who attends a non state-approved high school must have a minimum ACT composite score of 23/SAT 1060 . Recommendation of the principal or counselor is also required.


In addition to the general requirements for PEAP, students wishing to take Freshman- level English and/or Math courses must meet the following minimum requirements:


  • English ACT score of 18 for ENGL 101
  • Math ACT score of 18 for MATH 113
  • Math ACT score of 22 for MATH 170


Students will be considered for approval when the completed Application for Admission, PEAP Approval Form, and supporting documentation are received by the Office of Admissions. Students selected for the program will be enrolled in regular freshmen classes and, upon completion of the term, will receive deferred credit at McNeese State University. This credit will become a part of the student’s permanent record at the University only upon the student graduating from high school and furnishing the McNeese Registrar with his/her complete high school transcript. The transfer of credit to other institutions depends upon the policies of that particular institution.


Students in the PEAP program are subject to the rules, regulations and policies for all students at McNeese State University. Fees and other expenses will be the same as for the regularly enrolled students. Dormitory facilities are available for those who wish to live on campus.
