Freshmen
Freshmen are defined as those who have graduated from a secondary school. Candidates who earned college credit before high school graduation or attempted less than 12 hours after high school, are considered freshmen with advanced standing and should have their college transcripts sent to the Office of Admissions. High school students are encouraged to apply for admission beginning April 15 of their junior year. 

Transfer Students
Students who have attempted 12 or more hours, excluding remedial or developmental courses since high school, at a college or university other than Bowling Green State University, are considered transfer applicants. Transfer students must have a minimum accumulative grade point average (GPA), among all schools, of 2.0 or better. Students whose GPA does not meet this minimum requirement must either return to their previous institution and raise their grade point average or not attend any college for the period of one academic year. 

Students who have earned more than 30 semester hours or 45 quarter hours of coursework at a previous regionally accredited institution(s), will not be required to provide a copy of a high school transcript. 

High School Equivalency
Students who have earned high school equivalency through the General Educational Development (GED) testing program, should send a copy of the GED Certificate and scores to the Office of Admissions along with a copy of a high school transcript.
