Eligibility  

In-district students who meet the eligibility criteria may apply for admission to the Scholars Program at any time, although first-year entrance is preferred. 

    Entering first-year students must meet the following criteria:
  • A composite ACT score of at least 25 or
  • An accumulated minimum G.P.A. of 3.5 on a 4.0 scale or equivalent and
  • Faculty and counselor recommendations and
  • Additional indicators of academic potential

  • Current Triton College students must meet these two criteria:
  • 15 or more college-level credits
  • a minimum 3.5 G.P.A.

This is an academically rigorous program that welcomes highly motivated students for whom traditional indicators of academic success are not always valid.
